I've attempted on a few occasions to 'read' the colour leg bands on
Paul's Brown Falcons at Werribee, and never succeeded!  They usually fly
off before I get close enough to get a good look, or the light is awful
and all the colours look the same, or they're already in flight and the
legs are partly tucked into feathers.  I do try - truly.
