I have been doing a search on band numbers and the system seems to be in complete disarray. I can find no place on the net that gives real information on band codes. I've run into a page that had some information explaining what the numbers mean (port of entry etc) but even that was very shaky. It would seem to me that the government would keep logs of every import. Well, if they do, I sure cant find them. If anyone knows where such info might be found, we'd sure like to know!

Jerry,

At home I have a link to a site that has a registery of leg bands. You punch in the numbers/letters on the bands and if the breeder is registared or the bird was imported it can tell you where and when. Ill post it next week when I get back home.

I have found most of the birds that I have save but a few, on the site.

Hi everone,
Okay I have been there and done that. wink It took me a good month to get MaLuka's USDA papers after spending HOURS on the internet and phone calls as well. I found out thru his ID band that he was imported into LAX. I called LAX and asked for their "import #" You will at least find out where your bird was imported due to his ID band. After that the USDA has all his records. Sad to say, the USDA destroyed many of their documents when it became illegal to import the birds to the United States. A mistake they say was "very unfortunate". Anyhow, I got all my information from SARA KAMAN, DVM, USDA, APHIS, NATIONAL CENTER FOR IMPORT AND EXPORT.
It states on July 17, 1987 that 170 M2 were imported and the 2 died during quarantine. I have the records for leg band numbers begining with CWR348 thru 713, CWS311 thru 988, CWF 524- 694 Cwq 281 thru 970, and 0n 9/16 another CWR 000-079, 966, 967, 971, 974, 975, 979 - 986, 972, 973, 976 - 978, 987, 988 - 999. If your bird has any of the first 3 alpha letters I stated and then the last 3 numeric #'s I do have the records and could fax you a copy. They have all types of birds listed. I must say I spend a good month aquiring all this information. "It was not easy" I know how it feels to want to know the history of your bird - especially if he does have a leg band and was imported thru the USDA. Hope this helps. Please let me know as I will be curious. smile

They feel that a few inquiries are OK, but dont
want it posted on a message board. Some of their reasons are completly valid... one isnt. But thats ok, I understand their problem. *Jerry

I'm new to this board, and am facinated by the possibility of getting more information on the Mol2 I live with. Unfortunately, the letters on his band aren't in the group that was already posted: CWK 198. I would be happy to help in gathering/sorting info--I just don't know where to start. Advice, anyone?
