[cayugabirds-l] Caspian Terns

2012-08-05 Thread John and Sue Gregoire
Please take a very close look at any CATEs sighted in this area. A colleague has banded and color marked (tarsus) several in Canada. He has used yellow and red bands. Particularly interested in the yellow bands as those birds have GPS tags. Photos, exact location, time and date would be helpful.
