    The blue band was never seen at Tutakoke.

    39EY is a VERY cool bird. Banded in 1990 in the Camp drive. Seen nesting in 1993 with an unmarked mate, laid 5 eggs on julian day 148, they hatched on 173, and was captured in the Tutakoke drive. Seen nesting in 1994 with unmarked mate, laid 5 eggs on 145, hatched on 170, caught in the Hock Slough drive. 1996 was caught in the Hock Slough drive. 1998 was caught in the Hock Slough drive. 1999 laid 4 eggs on 154, hatched on 179. 2001 was paired with 910Y and laid 4 eggs. 2002 laid 5 eggs. 2003 laid 4 eggs. 2004 laid 6 eggs on 135, hatched on 164. 2005 laid 4 eggs on 149, hatched on 174. 2006 caught in Hock Slough drive. 2007 paired with 3STK, laid 4 eggs on 148, hatched on 173, and captured in Hock Slough Drive. 2009 laid 5 eggs and was caught at Hock Slough. Had 27 kids webtagged over the years.

    The black band also had a webtag and was the yellow bands son........

    Damn :bow:bow:flame Jeff I knew you were getting after it down there, but you are taking it to a new level, I was there hunting in the late 90's for 5 years consecutive and had some great hunts, Ill have to reconsider bringing some more guys back next fall to hunt with you. Keep up the great pics.

    Loved the photos and thanks for history on banded bird. Fascinating stuff that comes from research and computerized records. Really excellent. :tu
