Jason et al.:

The Bird Banding Laboratory at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center is the
place to send all reports of banded or color-marked birds.  They maintain
records on all banded birds, and will contact the bander with your
information.  Please be specific, indicating the date and location of the
sighting, habitat, and what the bird was doing (if it was alive), and the
names of the observers.  Be precise about the position of color bands, if
any.  Do provide contact information for yourself, since the bander may
contact you for more information.  This is a very important service that
birders provide, since we become the eyes for dozens of research projects
across the continent.  I've been a beneficiary myself, so I know what it
means to the researchers.  On their behalf, thank you for the information you
