During the summer of 2017 and 2018, adult male Painted Buntings were fitted with geolocators (a light-level tracking device) on Kiawah Island. The birds were banded with an aluminum band on the right leg and either a yellow or pink on the left leg. To retrieve the valuable data stored on the geolocator, we need to recapture these birds and take off the device. If you see a Painted Bunting with a yellow or pink color band coming to your bird feeder, please contact Aaron Given at firstname.lastname@example.org or 843-768-9166.
