last two bands I called in this year have both resulted in an E-mail satting that there was a problem- lost or just not submitted band info from the biologist! One I could see but Two?? I think I'm going to call them monday and see what the deal is.
Thank you for your recent report of band 1008-44007.
Unfortunately, we cannot process your report immediately. This is due to one or both of these reasons:
1. There is a discrepancy or potential error in your report that will place it in a hold file until time allows us to work on resolving it.
2. The bander has not yet submitted the data for this band so we are unable to process your report at this time.
In the case where there is a discrepancy or potential error in your report, we may need to contact you for further details on the encounter.
In the case of the banding data not currently being available, the bander is being notified that a recovery of one of their bands has occurred, along with a request that they submit the banding data as soon as possible. We are not always successful with our first attempt to obtain the banding data, but we do send second and third requests beginning a month after the first request was sent. Occasionally the bander has the band in their possession or has lost the banding data due to extenuating circumstances and we will not be able to process your report. If this is the case, you will be notified. If there are no errors in the encounter report when the banding data is received, it will automatically be processed and your certificate of appreciation will be sent
If some time has passed and you have not received your certificate, please do not report the band again, as this will just slow the process further. Instead, please contact us via e-mail or phone, and we will be happy to provide an update on the progress of your report.
Thank you for reporting this band encounter to us. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.
Please confirm the details that were submitted below and if you notice any errors, please contact us by replying to this email with hist! ory.
