|Kind of a funny looking face that C88 is making. Not to worry folks...the collar isn't choking the goose. I have several other photos of it and it looks just fine. I just happened to get a photo of it sticking his tongue out at me.|
|C51 was right there near C88|
I recently found another banded Canada Goose in my new Patch. I was only able to see the numbers 8-1626 on the leg band. USGS sent me a note back that they were unable to find its banding history based on the partial number. Bummer!
So folks, next time you are out birding and see a banded, tagged, or collared bird, try and get that number and report it. The banders will appreciate it and you can enjoy learning about it too.
