Abstract

Foot-loss rates as high as 50% associated with leg banding have been reported for some shorebirds. Foot loss in a banded population of Spotted Sandpipers (Actitis macularia) was studied over 19 yr. A total of 267 banded birds were seen in at least one subsequent year, representing 774 bird years. Seven of 267 banded birds (2.6%) lost one foot in years following banding. One additional banded bird lost a toe. Three unbanded birds missing feet and one missing a toe were also noted. Of the seven banded birds missing feet, six lost the foot on the side withthe aluminum band. Assuming foot loss was independent of the aluminumband, the probability of observing at least six of seven losses on the aluminum-banded side is 0.013 (binomial test). A plastic colored legband caused toe loss on one bird. It is concluded that banding Spotted Sandpipers probably caused little harm to this population. Individual harm usually was associated with the aluminum band.
