Dear Peter,
All I can tell you is that the juvenile bird wasfrom Melaleuca. Where abouts were these birds exactly? It'd be good to get someone out there with a scope asap to nail the bands. Cheers, Mark.

PS Don't forget we need the colours of both bands -  also repeated letters will be on one band. Without this we can't determine individuals.

Re: OBP's at the WTP

There were a group of 7 Orange Bellied Parrots at the WTP today.

Of these 5 were adults and 2 juvenile.  Unfortunately i didn't have a scope with me, but some photos i took reveal a green band on the left leg of one of the juvenile birds, and a blue band of the right leg on one of the adults. Sorry, no numbers.
