    Lots of snows around this last week. This one was to young to fly when banded on 7/31/2017 in Alaska but made it down to central California on 11/9/17 or earlier. Pretty amazing what these birds do with their migration. Maybe they are replacing neck collars with these fancy leg bands now.

    Species: Lesser Snow Goose
    Date banded: 07/31/2017
    Banding Location: NEAR NUIQSUT, NORTH SLOPE BOROUGH, ALASKA, USA
    Age: WAS TOO YOUNG TO FLY WHEN BANDED IN 2017
    Sex: FEMALE

    Did you check that bird closely for a toe tag?

    Seen the toe tag, metal and plastic band on a snow a few years ago.
    On a hunt with friends, can't remember where it was band.
    All I know is no one saw the toe tag until we got back to the trucks.
