    Mine was banded on Igalik Island, AK, about 27 miles ESE of Barrow. I'm still waiting on my certificate (and before someone says something, yes I know they don't mail them anymore, I'm still waiting on the emailed version).

    Pat, Yours was banded by the same guy that did mine in 06. Get this... The bird band lab sent me an email on (LNL) Tarsus plus Metal band... They said the band number didnt match up... Asked me to take a pic of the metal... I reconfirmed to them that it was accurate.. Then they said.. that it was supposed to be on a cackler! and that there was no record of a Tarsus band.. It is an old Avise with clearly legible numbers.. this will be interesting:cool:
    LNL is on the left... sure doesnt look like a cackler:scratch

    Shane, Todd will have to be the Pacific brant Ninja as we have a Brant Ninja in NY already.

    Shane, I am pretty sure in my limited knowledge that the bird is a Brant! Interesting as how that will play out. Hard to imagine the miles those birds have flown. Keep me posted and hope we can get some info on the web-tags.
