Who knows the name of the man that was "given credit" in the U.S. for being the 1st person to band birds?
Take a youngster hunting today instead of taking him to rehab tomorrow.

My brother and another friend killed two of his (family's) banded birds.
I'd rather be hunting.

If I remember right John James Audubon had tied silver thread on a leg of warblers and in subsequent years either recaptured them or at least saw them again. This is technically banding birds which would put the date in the 19th century.
