Coded bands (closed aluminum or closed steel are year dated, plastics are undated) numbered and coded with your individual code. Please do not fill in the closed band section above if you wish coded bands only.

Coded bands will take between eight and ten weeks to arrive from the supplier. If you need bands quickly, we recommend ordering regular uncoded.

Quantity Material * Size Code Number Number Registrant's Name


* Please choose either closed aluminum (CA), stainless steel (SS), plastic (PL) or split aluminum (SA) or just write your request in the material field (it will scroll). As coded bands do not have the sizes listed on them, we recommend that similar ring sizes have different numbers. Special note: for some reason "N" or "n" does not register on our system so if you are ordering N size coded, please type the words "Size N" or even "Nn" in that line.


Also, stainless steel bands are not the regular closed bands made of aluminum used at most bird shows - they are not in the year colour, only bright silver! These bands are costly and cannot be returned for any reason so once ordered from England (usually within 24 hours of receipt of your order) you must pay  for them. No coded order can be cancelled or altered once sent to our supplier. Thank you!


Any other requests for coded bands (such as registration to a different person or club member, if you are a ring registrar), please indicate here:


Coded bands of all types take a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks to arrive from England. Please do not expect a faster delivery than this.  If you need closed bands quickly to band your young birds, please use the "closed aluminum or steel rings" section near the top of this page.


Member Prices  (affiliated clubs receive a reduced price) are as follows: Closed Aluminum Sizes A to L - $6.50 per 10, sizes M to S - $7.25 per 10, sizes T and up $20.00 per 10 or $2.50 each (minimum order 5 bands). Stainless Steel - $6.00 ea (minimum order 5 bands) Plastics - all sizes $8.50 per 10. Split Aluminum - A to L $12.50 per 10, M to S $14.50 per 10, T to X $17.00 per 10, Y to Z $28.00 per 10

Notes and Policies: Memberships are not refundable for any reason. All ring sales are final. Generally coded bands or any rings that must be ordered from our supplier will take somewhere between 8 and 10 weeks to receive, sometimes longer in peak season (September through December). Credit card information is not stored on our computer systems. Neither e-mail nor snail mail addresses are given out to the public for any reason without requesting the consent of the member first.
