But can they see those bands and easily identify which chick is which? So, for instance, they'd know this is Tiffany cuz of ... color combination of bands? or ?? I'm just curious what they band with. I know the puny little bands we use here can't be read unless you have the birds in-hand and I can't imagine that would be pleasant for either party when you're talking about something as big and powerful as a peregrine!
Here I think banders are licensed through Fish and Wildlife, but you report bands to the US Geological Survey (part of the Dept of Interior)
