I found this for you:

Ringing of birds in Sweden is administered by the Bird Ringing Centre at the Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. Information about recoveries of ringed birds is very valuable, and the Bird Ringing Centre has further instructions on how to report your findings on this web site.


How cool isn't that?!
Thanks a lot for this info

You can do something similar for whole Europe here at "EURING". (English)
In Bavaria there is a local page, too. Provided by the LBV here. (German)

If someone here has the knowledge, please help. Regularly, in Gmail, I notice I'm not getting notified of this thread and a couple others I always read. I sometimes forget to check Spam if I'm busy and end up way behind. I click Not Spam and that doesn't do the full remedial action so I've created a filter, which works for maybe a few days and then back in Spam they go. I've revisited the filter to no avail, it just keeps happening. As you can appreciate this is a major irritant that I could do without.

Hi Jack, I gave up on the mail notification because it was so inconsistent. Same thing happens with the bell icon and the ‘latest activity’ they don’t agree with each other, ‘latest activity’ often doesn’t show replies to your own comment.

Also my post number has hover below 10,000 for about 4 years, I get close then I lose a couple of thousand posts, then it goes back up, very slowly.

I think the forum software has a lot of glitches.

Thank You :)

But does every living bird have such a band? Can't recall seeing it before. Who does this? Anyone?
Only the ones that are caught by bird ringers (we call them rings in the UK and probably elsewhere). They either catch them as chicks in or near nests before they have fully fledged or catch adult birds in mist nets or by other means. Here are some photos I took in Jerusalem at a bird centre of a Robin in a mist net and a Hoopoe being ringed.

Misery loves company so I guess that helps. ;) I've found if I unwatch and watch every few times that it's fairly reliable but I tend to be so engaged in various jobs that I'm not very faithful about such things - must mend my ways!

Nice, it amazes me how non-aggressive they tend to be.

It's an Internet forum, who cares if we don't give it our full attention! I used to worry if I thought a comment had gone unanswered but now, not so much....
