There are a number of birds around the world carrying little name tags with them, in the form of engraved metal and colour bands on their legs. We need your help tracking them down!

This page is a resource for anyone looking to report such a sighting, but not knowing where to look. This site contains specific information for the research projects led by Assoc. Prof. Mike Weston (Deakin University). However, if you have a band or flag number from a bird not from our projects, we can point you in the right direction on where and how to report it.

Browse the menus above to find out more about us, our projects, and how you can report a sighting.

So, keep an eye out, tell your family and friends, and help find the birds!
