If you can read the USFWS metal band number on the leg then they can give you some information. Most studies with neck collars are on local populations often looking at behavioral or family dynamics, as you can identify each individual and follow them over time and see how many goslings they produce, who they pair with and so on. Other studies use the ratio of birds with neck collars to those without to get rough population estimates. I would guess a local university is who did it, but if its a bird that migrated it could be from anywhere. I don't know where you live, when I was at Humboldt State in Northern CA Professor Jeff Black had a long term study going with Western Canada geese looking at behavioral and breeding dynamics on a resident population, but there a lot of studies going on. Good luck on your search unless you can read the number on the metal band on the leg you may have a tough time getting your answer.
