We need your help
Do you want to participate in our research? Please, report sightings of colour-ringed birds to us. Each sighting will be highly valuable to the project and add knowledge to our understanding of the behaviour and ecology of urban blackbirds.
What information do we need?
To identify which individual you have seen and for us to be able to use this information in the project, we will ideally need the following details:
- Colour of the ring on the right leg (blue, yellow or red)
- Colour combination on the left leg (starting at the body and working down to the foot)
- Date of sighting
- Location of sighting
- Whether the bird was male or female
You can also send in a picture if you are able to photograph the bird with the rings visible.
