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).
