I got a good look at this guy in the scope. Does anyone know where I can report his leg bands?

Wonder if that's the same bird that came through our hawkwatch on Friday?

Thanks, barn swallow. Filled out a report form. Looks like this is a male crane hatched in march 2010. Flew south the first time following the Operation migration ultralight

I got an immediate response to my report from the International Crane Foundation.. Turns out I transposed two of the colors on the bands and my bird is a female from 2011. However, the bird I originally mentioned has a transmitter showing he is in Lawrence County Illinois. Is that near you?

Well, it's not near us -- but it's straight south of us, at the other end of the state. I suppose I could check and see which one went through our area on Friday!
