V,Vermonster said:Just curious, in Vermont I knew some guys that got banded birds and they would send them somewhere and get a certificate saying when/where, etc, that they were banded. Do they do that here? Is the banding a U.S. Fish and Game thing or state agencies?????
Most of the banding occurrs on the central flyway! I have had some luck with bands.
1989 3 banded honkers all from Montana, they were shot near the Salton Sea
2000 1 banded Mallard shot near Bakersfield, banded in northern Calif.
2001 1 banded Gadwall shot near Bakersfield, banded near Merced, Ca.
2004 1 banded GW teal shot near Salton Sea, banded in northern Saskatchewan
2005 1 banded and collared Ross goose shot in S/E Nebraska
Pile of snows on my tailgate, on the right side is a very rare white collared/banded ross goose
Other pic is of a banded mallard
ps: Never send the bands in, just call them in!
