Banded Birds

- posted by Rosey Pounsett

In 1997 Adrian Boyle started a project banding birds to look at bird movements and populations at Lake McIntyre. In May 1998 a Brown Thornbill aged 1+ years was banded. The same bird was recaptured in March 2013, making it nearly 16 years old! The oldest known Thornbill at that time was 17.5 years old.
