Transferring Bands

A bander is NOT authorized to transfer bands to another master permittee or to the subpermittees of another master permittee without prior approval from the appropriate Bird Banding Offices. After verbal approval is received, the permittee who is transferring bands should send a written request to the Banding Office identifying the range of bands and both permit names and numbers. Band sizes 0 through 3A can be transferred only in multiples of 100; sizes 4 and above in multiples of 5. Both banders involved in a transfer will receive written confirmation of the transfer from the appropriate Bird Banding Office.
