Since some time there is a new app for mobile phone that is able to enter observations of colour rings of geese and swans (and other species of birds) while in the field.
This new Bird Ring App is created by Mario Huizinga in close collaboration with Alterra and Sovon. The Bird Ring app is downloadable to your (Android) phone via Google Play Store or see http://birdring.nl/. After entering the data of the colour ringed bird in the field a push at the button uploads the observation to www.geese.org or to https://submit.cr-birding.org.
After uploading life history of the observed bird is received in the field.
We hope this Bird Ring app will give more pleasure to reading colour rings.
