The Butte Gives up a band

Pretty cool, I didn't expect the bird to be banded on a golf course though!

Makes a lot of sense, you sure don't get much "roll" on the fairways during the winter with all the wigeon pooping all over it! :yes:

We shot a female Canadian out of Colorado this year. Last year we took a snow from yellowknife canada. His wings must have been tired :lol3:

Troutbum43 did that bird happen to be banded on 02/05/10? I couldnt exactly make out the date from your picture. My reason for asking is I too shot a banded drake wigeon from the New Mexico Institute of Mining Golf Course that was banded on 02/05/10. Only difference is I killed mine in Tyrell County, North Carolina. Guess he got off course at some point in his migration. If so its pretty wild to think both of those birds were together at one point and ended up that far apart. Congrats on the band!

By gosh he was! I'll be dammed how about that! Wow yeah that is crazy since I shot him about about 60 miles from where he was banded. Very cool man, thanks for sharing that! :beer:
