If you look closely at the attached photo, it looks like this bird has a band on their leg.

Yes, I can see the band - did you manage to get any photos that show all the details of the band, as then you can find out the history of the bird?

Sorry, I was only able to capture this one photograph of the bird before it flew away - so I don't have any good photos showing the band on its leg.
