Canada Goose Band Return

Just got this certificate from the U.S.G.S. Banding Lab with details on a Canada Goose I saw last month.


So this bird was banded two years ago not far from here at another Wildlife Management Area in the county.  Would be fun to know more about where it has been the last two years.  Does it migrate north, or is it one of the local resident geese?  My recollection is that it was probably one of the bigger introduced birds, here are a couple of poor digiscoped shots I got of it by itself.

Very neat! Did it look like one of the big introduced birds or like a migrant?

I think it was a bigger one. Somewhere I got a bad photo of it...

It's always exciting to get banding data back. Many years ago as a younger birder, I found an out of place Snow Goose in my hometown that was banded on Baffin Island.
