    Lesser from Coal Harbour, Nunavut Canada. Banded in 2016. Put a lot of miles under her wings. What an honor to bag such a bird. IMG_E0092.jpg

    I just love banding stories. Doesn’t matter the species either. Songbirds, birds of prey, waterfowl, whatever, every story is unique. I hope banding never goes away, it keeps me goin in the tough times of hunting

    That's awesome! I'll definitely be excited if I ever come across one of my birds wearing some jewelry! It's fun to hear / find the history. Wow though, that is a heck of a treck from way up there.

    That makes two from me from Nunavet. Last spring I bagged a snow goose from up there too. Just about the same age. We must get quite a few birds from that area through here
