Recovery records from banded birds are ideally suited to computer processing. A data editing routine and five programs to tabulate band recovery data for analysis are presented with examples of each program's application. One of the programs produces a printer plot of North America simulating a Lambert Azimuthal Equal-area projection on which recovery or banding locations are plotted. Modification of the procedure to permit plotting of recoveries on maps is discussed and illustrated.
