PIPING PLOVER BIRD BANDING DISORDERS

Although bird banding is tremendously helpful to researchers, after seeing the following video, I understand why conservationists have decided not to band in our area. I am puzzled as to why the Plover in this video has to have sooooo many bands.

  • I have never seen this many bands on a Piping Plover,but it sure does appear to be bothersome to the bird. I think the different colors are from different banding sites. As shorebirds have some huge migrations, they could be found at many sites from southern to northern hemisphere. Very interesting footage.
    Thanks for sharing.
