During 1966-1967, 22, 422 birds of 128 species were ringed at more than 20 localities covering 17 prefectures in Japan. The number of birds ringed is tabled in Table 1. Recoveries of birds ringed by Yamashina Institute for Ornithology and its cooperators (except those recovered at banding places or their vicinities, less than 6 months after having been ringed), in total 15 species, 90 birds (of which 10 species, 35 birds from abroad) are described. Codes used here such as +, X, (X), etc. are same as those being used in England (Rydzewski Ring 22: 293-207, 1960). Recoveries of birds ringed in Japan by two other banding teams, the Migratory Animal Pathological Survey, US Army and the Government Forest Experiment Station, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, are reported separately. The research has been made possible through the support and sponsorship of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the US Army Research and Development Group (Far East).
