Black Skimmer banding project
To better study survival and movements, several organizations are banding Black Skimmers with Field Readable bands with a letter and a number. Our project is located in Pinellas County, Florida, but we will send data to other banders if you see a band that is not ours!
Color of bands from different states:
Location (Latitude and Longitude would be great, but just the beach's name or address is fine too)
Date you saw the banded skimmer
Color of bands and codes (color = state)
Green with white letters & numbers (Florida)
Black with white letters letters & numbers (North Carolina)
White band with black letters & numbers (Virginia)
Blue with white letters letters & numbers (New Jersey)
Small Yellow band with black letters & numbers (New York)
Orange with black letters & numbers (Massachusetts)
Red band with white letters & numbers (Texas)
Code on the band (most have a letter and 2 numbers, but there is variation)
About how many skimmers in the flock?
