BIRD BANDING IN CALIFORNIA 1

EMERSON A. STONER

Western Bird Banding Association

Bcnicia, California

Bird banding has been universally accepted as a very informative
method of scientific study of many phases of wild bird biology. Govern-
ment agencies recognize the value of such studies. In the United States,
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides numbered bands and forms
and instructions to encourage banding. The California Department of Fish
and Game actively assists in the program and performs considerable rec-
ord keeping, particularly with game birds.

More than 1,200,000 birds have been banded in California since the
beginning of this activity in the early part of the present century. Al-
though smail in terms of percentage of birds banded, many banding
recoveries and returns are now of record. Selected ones pertaining to
California ere reported herein.

INTRODUCTION

Bird l>;ni<lin'_ r as discussed here generally consists of the placement
of a serially-numbered aluminum band on the leg of a wild bird. In the
United States, such bands are supplied by the U. S. Pish and Wildlife
Service. Bands range from size X (less than l / 12 inch in diameter)
designed for hummingbirds to size 9 (about %n inch in diameter) for
eagles, herons, swans, and other largo birds. A caption "Notify F. and
W. Serv. Wash. D.C." appears on each band, and any finder of a bird
wearing such a band should report the band number, species of bird,
date and location where found, and other pertinent data such as cause
of death, etc.

In Europe. Asia, and some other areas, this activity is called "ring-
ing". Kydzewski (1965) reports that more than 30 million birds were
"ringed" throughout the world from 1899 to 1963.

The California Department of Fish and Game cooperates with the
U. S. Fish and "Wildlife Service in authorizing and encouraging band-
ing of wild birds to learn movements and migration routes, longevity
periods, plumage changes, sex ratios, and other ornithological data.
The California Fish and 'Wildlife Plan lists as its fourth objective "to
provide for scientific and educational use of fish and wildlife" and
proposes to insure the availability of fish and wildlife for study and
research by scientists and students (California Department of Fish
and Game, 1966).

Many state and federal personnel band birds in the performance of
their official duties. The California Department of Fish and Game
controls the issuance of state permits to individual students who band
birds in California as a requirement of their educational curriculum
and to others who can prove to the Department that they wish to band
for scientific study purposes. Many persons authorized to band are
volunteers and are not paid for their services. Much banding is done

in spare time by busy people who have a scientific interest in bird
stud}*. Both a California permit and a federal permit are required to
capture migratory and insectivorous birds for banding. Birds may be
detained only for the few minutes necessary to place the band and
write the necessary data.

HISTORY

Several schemes for marking birds with numbered bands were pro-
jected in the early part of the present century. Lincoln (1947. p. 3)
records that early interest in banding in the United States resulted
in the organization of the American Bird Banding Association in 100! i.
In 1920. the work was transferred to the Bureau of Biological Survey
(later incorporated in the U.S. Fish and "Wildlife Service) and the
Canadian Wildlife Service, which adopted uniform regulations.

A small group of southern California banders met in -January 1 ' > i2 ~>
at the call of J. Eugene Law of Altadena and formed the Western Bird
Banding Association. The territorv covered by the western association
includes the 13 states of the United States wholly west of the 100th
meridian, the three provinces of Canada wholly vest of the 110th
meridian, and Mexico west of the summit of the Sierra Madre Oriental.

Reports of birds banded in California are rendered annually to the
California Department of Fish and Game, the Western Bird Banding
Association, and periodically the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

A total of 1,162,274 birds was banded in California from 1931
through 1966 (Table 1 . TL'se figures have been compiled Prom reports
in the Western Bird Bander, official organ of the Western Bird Band-
ing Association.

CALIFORNIA FISH AND GAME

BIRD BANDING ACTIVITY IN CALIFORNIA DURING 1966

Reports to the Western Bird Banding Association show ihai 62.460
birds of -II species were banded in L966 by the 60 active California
banding stations. Eighteen <>f the sixty active stations banded inure
than 500 birds during 1966 (Table 2).

The Point Rej'es Bird Observatory (Table 2), established in 1965, is
the only full-time banding station in America. This observatory, on the
eoast north of Bolinas, at the southern tip of Point Keys National
Seashore, promises to be very important to banders and bird enthusiasts
because of the great diversity of birds found there. To date, 312 species
of wild birds have been recorded for the Point Reyes Peninsula, which
has been described as "the most exciting wildlife area in California".

Of the 241 species of birds banded in California in 1966, each of 24
were represented by more than 500 individuals (Table 3).

BANDING RECOVERIES AND RETURNS PERTAINING TO CALIFORNIA

It would not be possible, in a shorl article on bird banding, to publish
all of the many significant and interesting reports of recoveries and
returns of banded birds. Recoveries, in brief, refer to birds banded
in one area and found, dead or alive, in another area. Returns, briefly,
are birds banded at one station and recaptured subsequently at or near
the same station.

Frank M. Kozlik. Waterfowl Coordinator for the California Depart-
ment of Fish and Game, has at my request listed some of the banding
recoveries of record in the Department of Fish and Game files (Ap-
pendix A). These are examples of movements of game birds banded
in California and recovered outside the State.

Some additional recoveries and returns of both game and nongame
birds were selected from reports made by various banders to the West-
ern Bird Banding Association Appendix B). These were selected
with emphasis on interesting migration patterns and longevity records.
