Are they using these colored leg bands now in place of neck collars?
I think so they are helpful to observe birds on the nest from what i hear. A lot harder to sniper them with a rifle because a lot harder to see them when they keep moving a neck collar can look like a neon sign on their neck i have read over 200 collars with a good spotting scope 75x power very easily read. Back in the early 80's tarsal banding was very common on snow geese killed a bunch of them back then. patience is the key to killing them cant kill first bird you see and get those little buggers very often.
In all of my years of monitoring, watching & documenting collared snows & blues here in NE Kansas & NW Missouri, I have never seen as many juvenile snows & blues as I'm seeing right now in the current migrating population of light geese. This bodes well for hunter success over the decoy spreads from now through the spring season. I'll be watching with my spotting scope for those colored tarsus bands too! Be safe...NC
tarsal bands from the 80's
The bands are awesome but wth....a golf ball !!!!!!!
No that golf ball was given to me by Tom Knaupp years ago 15 or so after he did a show in pittsburg autographed for my son who was 5
Most were from laperouse bay manitoba where a lot a research was being done at the time bands from 1976 to 1989 i believe a long time ago all were killed in SE Kansas
Its not only the central flyway, here in California we are covered in juvies as well. By far the most juvies I have seen in my life
Now Stefan, please remember you do not like shooting juvies,,,,
Leave them juvies to come back to Alberta,,, so us rednecks might have a chance to shoot at something this spring!!!!
Best of the season to you and anyone who might read this post!!!
