It was banded with rings of PRBO in 2005 in Ceuta, Sinaloa. There is a big colony about 100 pairs nesting in a abandoned salt pound. I marked and followed the birds all the breeding season. Nowdays biologist from Germany and Mexico have been marked all the birds from 5 years seasons.

Cute! What's the story with this banded bird?
