How You Can Help
Adult shrikes are currently being banded in many states and provinces in North America. Each banded shrike receives a unique combination of four bands: a federally issued stainless steel band and three color bands. Together, they create a unique code to identify each bird.
We are establishing a network of citizen scientists throughout North America to help with surveys and monitoring. You can join an existing Shrike Force, or start one in your area. Check our News and Events section for the latest on the Shrike Force, color band observations and other updates on the Working Group.
If you own or manage suitable land, take a few simple steps to make it shrike-friendly.
