|Carnaby's cockatoo chick about to be measured and leg banded|
My main task was to determine if any hen flushed from its nest was banded and if so to photograph them. With the right camera gear and some patience it is possible to capture images that enable the numbers on the band to be read and the individual to be identified. An example is in the photo below.
I didn't spot any of my study birds during the trip though. Maybe next time?
