Banded Ross

I forgot to mention yesterday we got our third band for the year. You can tell we are in adult birds when the band ratio if high. This one was a young band for white geese. It was banded as an adult in 2017. Making the bird at least 3 years old.

There is a boatload of birds in some of the areas we are hunting. We normally don’t see this many birds this late into the season.  These are some mean birds, with a few juvy’s and Ross mixed in the flocks. The water is receding at the house be there is the chance of up to 2″ between now and when we leave. We opted to spend the remainder of the season in the motel. The stability of having a set schedule makes it easier for us.  High field shot 7 today.
