  • Which whooper is pictured in the photo above? (Use the banding codes to find out.) How do you think all these leg bands feel to the bird? What experiences have you had that might be compared to the birds' leg bands? Did you get used to it? (Examples might be orthodontics, pierced ears, jewelry such as wristwatch or pierced ears, etc.)
