    Has anyone ever heard of, seen or gotten one of these? I killed a canada on Friday and he had a red zip tie on its leg that had G63 on it.

    If you look up pen raised birds, all seem to have a colored zip-tie on their legs. My guess is a tamie.

    I've only seen zip tie bands on ducks, and only and the Zoo.

    A friend of mine killed a snow with a red zip tie once, so I dont think all that have a zip tie are tame. If I remember right he ask a biologist and he said that the bird was probably very old and once had a collar.
