This is the form page to report Blue-banded Brown Pelicans, Red-banded Snowy Egrets, and White-banded Black-crowned Night-Herons. *Note* on Brown Pelican bands: the blue bands that we use have with a single letter and two numbers, ex. A44, 4A4. Only reports for one of our color band programs should be made using this form.
For more info on our banding programs as well as other notable banding programs in California and the U.S., please visit our Banding Program page. You can also report metal alloy banded birds directly to the USGS Bird Banding Lab (BBL).
Please note: If the bird you have seen is injured, please follow the instructions on the found a bird page for getting the bird to an appropriate rehabilitator or finding the appropriate contact to get help for the bird.
