Hi all,

The Red Knot I encountered on Apr 29th at Sunset Beach, OR was banded in
Mexico (Baja California Sur) possibly prior to 2014. See deets below from
the bird lab at Autonomous University of Baja California Sur.

Browsing the photos on their facebook page...looks like they encounter a
lot of knots. Pretty neat.

Buena observación de aves,

Dear Audrey, Toni, and Jonathan,
Thank you for sending and forward me this observation. We banded this Knot
in Guerrero Negro wetland complex, Baja California Sur, unfortunately,
since we don't know the inscription code in the yellow flag, we can't
determine in what year it was banded. It is possible that it is prior to
2014, for most of these flags we have to make much more effort to read the
I hope you have a chance to find another banded Knot.

Please feel free to visit our Facebook page ( [although in Spanish]), to find more
information about the birds we have banded in Mexico.

Best regards,

Hi all,

I partook in the shorebirding joy yesterday at Sunset Beach and
photographed a Red Knot with leg flags (left leg: top flag yellow, bottom
red). I've reported it via the USGS website
<>, but if anyone has another
connection please pass it on. Looking forward to learning more about it.
