Dude that's a bluebill.


JK. That's cool, I never knew there was such a thing. Looks pretty Goth!

So is there a chip to record the migratory pattern?

They tag a lot of the scaup and ringnecks in Bemidji, Minnesota. 'Wetland Wildlife Population and Research Group' have Long term research projects going on with scaup and ringnecks.

That's crazy, we have a place 20 miles from Bemidji and on 30 years have never seen a ringneck up there. They must just raft on the big water on Lake Bemidji or Plantagenet

Every thing is Coke.

I wonder if that junk whistles in flight. clap

She could definitely use it to hear advantage on slicing off those fresh water mussels.

Discovered this hen was tagged on 9/11/15 up in Montana at Red Rocks NWR. USGS was able to make the ID - they're some great folks working there and were quick to respond!
From the USGS:

"...Her nasal marker is a unique combination of colors and shapes
so we can identify her as an individual; we conduct pre-breeding and
post-breeding surveys of marked females on Lower Red Rock Lake to estimate
seasonal survival and factors that influence survival. We completed our
11th year of the study in 2015 and we've learned a fantastic amount of
information on lesser scaup thanks to the hard work of our marked females!
