A Little Slower Today – Band #5

Too much wind yesterday, too little this morning with frost. If only we could wave a wand giving us half the wind for both days. We shot our 5th band for the year. It was a rare too young to fly, so it was a juvy in 2013. Most of the bands we get are that old but banded as an adult, so there is no way to tell the actual age. Not on this one, we know it was 7. Our high field shot 20 snow geese. Our low group shot 6.

Tonight the geese fly off high. I’m betting they will be somewhere in SD by morning. Tomorrow’s forecast is 70, with a south wind gusting up to 40 mph. I would expect to see a migration, but Iowa is not as predictable as AR. We will see what happens tomorrow.
