0800 today I saw a group of four White-winged Choughs near the carpark at Strathnairn Homestead. When I glassed them I noticed one wore two bands on the right leg. The upper band was blue, the lower appeared to be pale yellow. Had a good view through binos at ~ 15m but bird was moving about in dappled shadow so I can’t be certain about the colour of the lower band.
