This morning, 01/16/2009, while guiding visiting Gainesville area  
birders Mary Landsman and Ellen Chen, we found a banded Crested  
Caracara on CR846 aka Immokalee Rd. not far from the turnoff for Ave  
Maria i.e. Camp Keais Rd. This is in Collier County. The bird was  
perched on a fence post and gave good looks for a full five minutes.  
We were able to see the band info through a spotting scope from 100  
yards away. The right leg of the bird had a silver/metallic band i.e.  
"federal"(?) band. The left leg had a blue metallic band with the  
number "6" above "X" (vertical arrangement). Can anyone tell me who  
might have banded this bird and when or point me in the right  
direction so that I could find out this info? Any help would be  
appreciated. Thanks.
