Ringed Spoonbill, Blenheim WTP

Postby GKincaid » Thu Jan 17, 2019 7:58 am

Yesterday I observed a Spoonbill at the Blenheim WTP with colored rings on its legs. (Right: Red over white. Left: White over light blue/green)

Does anyone know what authorities would be interested in this report?

Thanks,
Glenn

Kia ora Glenn

All banded birds in New Zealand should be reported to the Banding Office (Department of Conservation):
