Welcome to the Bird Ringing Centre in Sweden. At the Bird Ringing Centre all scientific ringing of wild birds in Sweden is administrated.
Since bird ringing begun in Sweden in 1911 more than fifteen million individual birds have been ringed and more than
180 000 of these have been recovered.
If you have found a ring or a ringed bird with the inscription RIKSMUSEUM STOCKHOLM we would be very pleased if you report this to us. How to report a ring or a ringed bird is described under Ring recovery.
If you give us your contact details we will send you a note on the recovered bird with information on when and where the bird was ringed and anything else we know about this individual bird.
Bird ringing, as a scientific method, is very important for our knowledge about reproduction, migration and survival rates in many bird species and every recovery report is valuable.
