I've seen choughs with numbered leg bands before like this... curious who's doing the study?

Good pick up. Not sure who's done this one but here are a few possible leads from the Canberra birds discussion list

The tags I've seen were just like in the photo - 3 digit black numbers on white bands

That led me to a study where they banded choughs between 2002-5:
