Note the two bands on this hawk. Why two? And does anyone know where the bands originated? Confirm Ferruginous Hawk.

-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

I don't know why it was double banded, but this might explain things.

A lot of times when you see two or more bands, one is a Fish and Wildlife band and the others are color bands (in smaller birds) or field-readable bands (in larger birds) so you don't have to catch the bird again to know which one it is. The field readable bands have a simpler combination in large letters, and you use a unique color combination for each individual with the color bands. If you look at the Ferrug picture, you can see that the band on the right leg is yellow with some markings, and if you look at the White-crowned, the band on the left leg looks white rather than aluminum.

Really interesting, thank you both!
