Students recording bird band recovery records

Detailed Description

Students Anaga Nmagu and Danielle Travers, hired with ARRA funds, are converting more than one million hand-written bird band recovery records into digital format at the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. Once digitized, these invaluable recovery records will be linked to the Bird Banding Laboratory's new Oracle database for easy access by researchers and managers engaged in bird science, conservation and management.
