p.1 #1 · Banded Tundra Swan


Taken from our front deck three days ago. Sent the number in and found out it was banded just north of us near Egigik Alaska five years ago as a two year old.

Beautiful Swan shot with white snow back ground. It looks like one has been banded. TFS.

Looks like the one with the neck band is also sporting a leg band. Why would so many identifiers be necessary? I realize the neck band is more visible, but sometimes I think researchers go too far.

Douglas:
When I asked that same question I was told the neck band was to identify family groups and acquire location data while the bird was still alive.
