||Are the DP chicks not going to be banded? It seems such a shame if they are not.

||No, these never get banded and are never in direct contact with humans.

||Hmmmn, interesting. There are certain organisations in this country who NEVER miss an opportunity to ring a bird.

||I believe that since this nest is on a Federal Wildlife refuge, one of the regulatrions is a strict "Look but don't touch" policy. This was the cause of great concern during the first year when many if witnessed nest aggression for the first time. There was a great hue and cry to save the beleaguered third chick.

||You are right Ron.....the property is owned by the Government....FWR....and it is definitely "look but don't touch"!
