Spring banding season has come and gone, and it seems to go so fast. The 2023 Spring season was better with the increased number of captured birds, 1860 compared to 1708 in 2022. Each year we are asked several times as to the status of birds migrating back to the Colored Sands area. The answer is yes, there are a few returns every year, and some may be surprises. Many of the birds recaptured with Sand Bluff bands are migrants that travel great distances to return to their breeding territory.
