You will find information on who you should contact for birds with other colour combinations on "European colour-ring Birding" www.cr-birding.org. You will also find a colour ring guide at http://www.crb-photoguide.com. A metal ring should be reported to Stavanger Museum at this site: www.nhm.uio.no/fagene/zoologi/fugl/ringmerking/Rapport_gjenfunn.htm

Do you have a colour ringing project?
There will be more projects included here in the near future. If you have a project that you want to promote on these pages, please contact administrator post@ringmerking.no. The only demand is that every bird has its individual colour code and that EURING-agreement is needed in order to avoid overlapping projects (www.cr-birding.be). The projects on this page are mainly Norwegian, but other projects can be assessed.

Proposals for improvements
This site will be regularly updated. If you have suggestions to things that can be improved or any good ideas, please contact post@ringmerking.no.
