Abstract:
The Banding Retrieval File contains summarized records for data through the last full calendar year for all game birds banded since 1908, and for all nongame birds banded since 1954. A summary record includes all birds of the same species, age and sex, with the same status and additional information codes, banded under the same permit number, within the same region and 10-minute block of latitude and longitude, during the same month and 5-day banding period, the same band type, and band number prefix. Supplementary Information: The Banding Retrieval File contains over 9 million records representing over 50 million birds processed through August 1995. The file increases by approximately 1.2 million birds each year. Data are displayed in the following order: species number, region, year, permit, month, day code, status and additional information, age, sex, latitude, longitude, direction code, prefix and part of band suffix, total number of birds. A file format is included with all disks to assist the user in separating the fields. Listings have the fields separated and identified. The numerical codes in the data can be translated with the aid of the Bird Banding Manual, vol. 1 part 5 (described in the section 1.15 Cross Reference). Status code in the first column indicates that something was done to the bird upon recapture that changed the original status. Geographic Description: Includes range of North American species. Range includes breeding, wintering and migration locations. Wintering ranges can include South America, Africa, Europe. Breeding can occur as far north as the Arctic. However, the species being studied are North American species. http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/ Banding and encounter data are gathered and filed for the purpose of facilitating migratory bird research in North America. Waterfowl banding and encounter data are used by federal, state and provincial wildlife agencies in combination with other data sets, to help set federal hunting regulations. In addition, many states and provinces use banding and encounter data as a component of both game and nongame studies. Both banding and encounter data can be combined with other data for work on bird distribution, migration, survival, mortality, population size, and other demographic parameters.

Access_Constraints: Information may be withheld where endangered or threatened or sensitive species are involved. To protect their interests, a "Policy on Release" is included with each request, describing current limiting criteria.
Use_Constraints:
Bird Banding data maintained in the computer files have been gathered at a significant cost to the many persons and agencies who cooperate in the North American Bird Banding Program. These cooperators have certain proprietary interests in the data they produce. The person who first bands a bird has prior publication rights to any data resulting from that banding and/or subsequent encounter of that band. Information may be withheld where endangered or threatened or sensitive species are involved. To protect their interests, a "Policy on Release" is included with each request, describing current limiting criteria.
