Mark, your report reminds me of aa email from a friend of mine in eastern Germany.They always eagerly await the arrival of the Cranes over there and a local newspaper said that one had arrive back painted blue! He wasnt clear if it was completely blue or had a bit of paint on it ! But it was accepted by its mate and seems to be doing fine.

The bird, a stork, has become locally famous and is the subject of news videos:

It looks as if it had taken a bath in some USDA Blue #5. Do any of the netting and ringing stations use this to track individual birds?
