    Been a lot of banded birds images showing up. This is one thing I always enjoy shooting (with a camera and with a shotgun). Several times recently I have been reviewing images when I get home only to realize one of the birds were banded.

    So lets see 'em! Dead, alive, duck, goose, pelican, hummingbirds, whatever...I know I can't be the only one who has a few of these...


    Here are mine from last weekend. Three different white geese w/ collars. The first one I didn't even realize was there until I got home. I posted them up on the CA forum and leanred the white on white was to see what the recovery rate was compared to the colored (AKA death sentence) collars. Not the best images, but fun to capture.

    Actually three bands in this one. Yellow collar plus two leg bands (to the left and front). This is a big crop...

    Not a great pic but lots of bling.

    I like when you see it when you get home....what would be a throw away pic becomes a keeper.

    This is the first good pic I took when I got my DSLR several years ago and was taken with a $99 lens.
