    Made it out for another quick round of banding. Caught about 45 ducks, but 20+ were recaptures. Still, 23 newly banded birds in under an hour is good. This spot is up to over 250 newly banded ducks this year so far. Today was all Mallards, with the exception of one nice adult drake Pintail in his eclipse plumage. Enjoy!

    My niece was a first-timer.

    Green Duck, Do you guys ever need extra hands? Being from Yakima as well, I find the whole banding process interesting and would love to help out if needed. Thanks.
