Bird Banding

I was given this website for reporting the tagged vulture, or any bird and any kind of tag or band: http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/

Turkey Vulture - wing tag BC
Turkey Vulture Meeting

I reported the sighting of this turkey vulture and found out it hatched in 2011 and was tagged on June 6, 2012, on the south Washington coast: Tagging Location

So this one hasn’t gone too far.  Google Maps doesn’t have an as-the-crow-flies feature.  But, as-the-person-drives, the vulture is now 220 miles south of where it was tagged a year ago.
