After a great deal of searching I?ve been able to come up with only
two companies that offer Teflon ribbon that?s specifically used for
avian harnesses ? one a manufacturer, the other a retailer of wildlife
Below those two companies, in case they aren?t suitable, I?ve provided
some other options for you to pursue. I was not able to confirm that
any of them offered the product you?re looking for, but they may be
able to give you information on where to purchase it.
It appears that the main supplier of Teflon ribbon for avian harnesses
is a company called Bally Ribbon Mills in Pennsylvania. As you can
see from these search results, the company is mentioned as the
manufacturer of the Teflon ribbon used in avian transmitter harnesses
by both US and Canadian government wildlife agencies.

TEFLON RIBBON MANUFACTURERS
Bally was the only manufacturer referenced in Teflon ribbon used on
birds. I did find other manufacturers of Teflon tape but am not sure
they?ll be useful. First, we don?t know the exact specifications of
the ribbon used on birds and whether or not something similar would be
safe, and second, large manufacturers are not retailers, so only sell
