Hi everybody -

Just passing on the message below by request.


SHOREBIRDERS: Please keep your eyes on Pluvialis plover legs during the
fall migration and wintering season - a marked bird may come your way!

Possibilities are: Pacific Golden-Plovers from various sites (Oahu, Hawaii;
Johnston Atoll; Nome, Alaska); American Golden-Plovers and Black-bellied
(Grey) Plovers captured on breeding grounds near Nome.  Each bird wears a
metal band plus some combination of color-bands.  There are a few with
flags.  It is important to record the exact sequence on each leg, and
whether there is a color-band above or below the metal band.

Please send observations with as much information as possible to:
