Banded

Recommended Posts

I didn't see that this had been reposted since the crash.  So here we go again!  Neck band and leg band.  I'll let you know the history when I get the report back

So this little goose has a lot of frequent flyer miles!  It's from Ushakovskoye, Chukotskiy Avtonomnyy Okrug, Russia  (north and west of Alaska).   It's a male and was hatched in 2016 or earlier.   It's probably gone back and forth since it was hatched.  You really can't underestimate the stamina of birds - they go thru a lot to survive.  I hope the hunters are bad shots and he makes the trip back.

D25

 

Christmas eve present, d25 is a male born in 2011 at the Manasquan nest, in central New Jersey,he shows up around this time of year when they drain the local lake. High iso and no light but always cool to see that he is still alive and thriving, watched him chase and grab a Great blue heron for breakfast..

Just saw this Sanderling a few days ago at Fort DeSoto Park in FL.  I didn't notice the band at the time, but discovered it when I was going through my pictures.  It was banded 5-30-16 at Chaplin Lake, Saskatchewan and has been seen every year since in the Fort DeSoto area.
