Default Banded goose





Saw a neck banded Canada goose this A.M. hanging with the local park geese, had a white band. Far enough away I couldn't read numbers. I thought they gave up neck banding geese several years ago. Killed one back in 1989, but havn't seen one since. Might be a very old goose. ???

White one is likely old. There's a slight chance it could be a Chicago area resident, they've put a lot on the past few years. Most of them start with a letter and followed by three numbers.

Gonna try to get close enough to read numbers tomorrow a.m. if its still around. Maybe can get some info on where it was banded. If he wasn't in city limits he wouldn't last long.

Not sure if that collar you saw is still around or not but my friend killed a white one from Chicago just up river from you yesterday. It was a white 3 digit collar.

They still collar geese in a few areas like Chicago and some other northern states like New York

Another vote for Chicago as I know people that have worked on that banding project recently.
