Colour bands on birds enable individual identification, using binoculars, telescopes or cameras, without needing to recapture the bird.
The New Zealand National Bird Banding Scheme (NZNBBS) is collating information on colour banding projects to improve recording and reporting of colour-banded birds. See South African and European examples.
Birders, banders, and anyone who has reported a colour-banded bird are invited to complete the survey.
