On July 24, 2007, I entered a post on my Camp Timbercrest blog about visiting the Gravel Pit. You can read about that by clicking this sentence. What I didn’t mention in that post is that while I was there, I found a dead bird that had a tag on its leg.
I entered the tag number into this database: http://www.reportband.gov/. The number was not in the database. Apparently the bander has not yet made an intial entry for this tag. I checked with bird bander Tom LeBlanc, but it wasn’t one of his tags. He gave me the name of another bander and I checked with him… another dead end.
Do you know a bander? Could you pass the link to this post on to help me solve this mystery? The tag number was 2261 63326. I found the bird here:
Thanks for your help! (And please don’t tell anyone in my family that I put the dead bird on the kitchen table to photograph it, kay?)
