    My first band with camera and still waiting to get one with the shotgun. I didn't even notice until I got home that I caught it.

    Collared specks and swans!! Nice!!!!! Another first for me. The collared honks are nice as well. I have seen them a few times, but never got a picture.

    Has anyone reported the collars before? I read somewhere that they send a letter saying thanks or something like that. I have reported about 5 collars now and the eagle wing tags. I haven't even received an email saying they got the reports. I'm wondering if I'm wasting my time.....

    Nice! All kinds of stuff going on in that picture. Honks, blue, specks, and a collar....talk about a mixed bag!

    Here is a band that I can not figure out. I have tired to zoom in on it and it is not a regular Call band. Anyone have any ideas?
