Thank you so much Jack! Andy, we always appreciate your observations, and photos are always exciting!

I was fortunate to be able to attend the annual Streaked Horned Lark Working Group meeting on Monday, and we talked about bird sightings at Broughton during migration and stopover periods. The biologist who banded the bird you noted, below, informed me that he had seen the photographs and confirmed the band. Wonderful to get such detailed confirmation! This is what we need in the community, and I very much appreciate your information.

Let’s please stay in touch as we continue to monitor and learn more about these birds and where they go (and stay ☺).

All the best,

Hi Andy,

I’m cc’ing this to Katy Weil who works for Multnomah county and was involved in getting the habitat cordoned off for the Horned Larks earlier this year. I’m sure she’s interested in this info.

Two days ago at Broughton Beach in Portland I was able to photograph some Horned Larks one of which had bands visible on both legs.

I've learned its origins and thought others might be interested.

"Green over yellow on left, and red over silver on the right (USFWS# 2771-19638) was banded as a nestling on 7 July 2017 at Gray Army Airport on Joint Base Lewis-McChord military base near Tacoma, WA."
