Hi everybody -
For your attention, the following message from Wally Johnson.
SHOREBIRDERS: Please keep your eyes on Pluvialis plover legs during the
upcoming migration and breeding season! Pacific Golden-Plovers banded at
various sites (Oahu, HI; Johnston Atoll; Nome, AK) might be coming your way,
also American Golden-Plovers, and Black-bellied Plovers captured near Nome.
Each bird wears a metal band plus some combination of color-bands or 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. Send observations with as
much information as possible to: Wally Johnson, Dept. of Ecology, Montana
State University, Bozeman, MT 59717 USA (e-mail ; tele
406-587-7305; FAX 406-994-3190).
