I killed a banded widgeon this morning. Had a pair come in early but left. After watching ducks land in the corner of the field all morning I decided to leave the blind and just sit where they kept landing. Later in the hunt another pair of wigeon came back and after several passes the drake gave me a good shot. I knew he was a pretty bird but was shocked when I recovered him on my way out to see he was banded. The band is really worn and hard to read the numbers. I knew he was a old bird, banned in 2005. See below.

A confirmation email has been sent to you.
See below the banding information for the reported bird:


Date 08/22/2005
Species American Wigeon
Age HATCHED IN 2004 OR EARLIER
Sex MALE
Location 24 NNE FT NORMAN, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES, CANADA

Phew, I'm glad you meant BANDED and not banned.

Congrats.

Here's the bird. If he or a moderator would put it in the original post, that would be great.

Awesome

One of the 2 bands i have was of a snow goose shot in china texas in 2005, banded in churchill manitoba in 1989
Which is pretty old
Tracked the band down to a guy who banded it as a school project. He now works at a new york science museum
I still talk to him yearly and shot some ducks with him last year in illinois
