Wow...this is neat. Being a Mainer, I don't get on the VT or NH forums too frequently, but this caught my eye and I'm glad I read it. My primary waterfowl hunting buddy is in his late 60's and has lived in Millinocket most of his life. For years now, he has done volunteer nest box work in the area and a tiny bit of banding for the biologist when he does nest counts in the spring. I believe he is the only one that bands in Millinocket and only bands a handful each year (literally just a couple here or there when he is able to catch a hen on the nest). I will have to let him know this week that one of his Goldeneyes made it to VT...very cool!
