Cool, nice job. Congrats on the neck band!
ya we have seen 4 collared birds.. 2 white and 2 orange... and also seen about 15-20 tarsus bands.. !!!! it is on when the snow hits.. !!!Killer Miller said:A orange collared bird and a bird with a leg band and black tarsus leg band! Are freakin' serious?
ya there was .. as usual it was taken off before p[ics.. It was thin....Matt said:Was there a leg band on the collared bird? I can't tell for sure in the pic but it doesn't look like it.
ya sometimes.. just like henrietta... she got hers off as soon as she hit the ground !!!!!! and i have more but as you can see from the one of Mikie it was Very dark and my dam camera is junk... to many pics on a $150 camera.... neck collar was in winesk Ontario... others just said Cananda..??? i dont know where the yellow ones are from but i will make sure to take a pic for ya before anything is removed !!!!! :lol: :lol:Matt said:So the leg bands come off collars before photos but you leave them on tarsus banded birds? Where are the black tarsus bands from?
Also good thing i had the little video camera with me.. when i get my big one back ill post you a video of use killn' them and retrieving them.. !!! :lol: :lol:Matt said:So the leg bands come off collars before photos but you leave them on tarsus banded birds? Where are the black tarsus bands from?
ya i shot at a blue with yellow letter/# neck collar bird about 5 years ago.. we had 2 orange ones here last year for about 3 weeks.. i never got them but i hunted my AZZ off for them.. They are here every year and even 2 years ago i had a tranmitter here(double banded and transmitter.)Matt said:Sounds interesting. I saw a blue collar around here today and there was one spotted where we were hunting MO last week too. Saw a yellow/black letters tarsus band in Des Moines in the spring. Its the first collar I've seen around here in a long time. Sounds like you are in a good area for bands!
Im confused where are the pics?Killer Miller said:A orange collared bird and a bird with a leg band and black tarsus leg band! Are freakin' serious?
gota love the migration..last year we had 5 birds that were double band reward bands killed.. all $100 !!!!
I;m confused about the reward band thing. You did or did not kill them last year?my goal is to kill a reward band or a duck band.. never killed either of those.. did have a live banded redtail hawk in my hands about 3 years ago.. SHould of kept the band !!!!
