This photograph was taken by William McRoberts at the Alaska Bald Eagle Festival this week in Haines, AK. David Hancock has requested that I post this photo in the hopes that someone out there will recognize this particular pelagial wing tag.
These are light weight plastic tags used by various bird tagging programs. Does anyone know which organization uses tags that look like this?
We already know all about Dr. Peter Sharpe's work at the Institute for Wildlife Studies on the Channel Islands in southern California. This is not the same tag that Peter uses. His are not that color and they all have an A or a K at the top of the number, etc.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
