Maine Birder Band

Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife recently released the Maine Birder Band, an engraved metal band that fits onto a binocular strap and could help a birder recover lost optics via the registered number. More importantly, the $20 annual, tax-deductible cost contributes to habitat conservation.

As the site says:

Maine's hunters and anglers through license fees and equipment taxes have paid for the bulk of these efforts. With declining funds available for non-game and endangered species work, our bird conservation efforts now also depend on Maine's birding community to help conserve what you care about.
[Bold added]

You can buy a band here. You do want some bino bling, don't you?

I just received mine in the mail on Tuesday.

What a great idea for a great cause.
