Does anyone out there know the story on all of the bands on the legs of the typical UW crow? Today, I noticed a particularly daring crow playing on the ave with at least two bands on each leg.

I see the bands and wonder what they mean and what interesting studies are underway. Do the crows mind this ankle jewelry? Does it become some sort of avian status symbol? How do they affect the bird's ability to fly? Do the bands alter aerodynamics?

This is what my mind does while I'm waiting for the bus on cold sunny mornings.
