    Help with tracking bird band info for sex and age

    An umbrella Cockatoo was dropped in our lap by someone who shouldn’t own birds. We are trying our best to give him an enriching life. He has a band on his right leg. It says FL RFA 33. We do not know the gender or the age. Any way I can track that down with this band?
