Snow Goose update

Well I got the info back on "my" collared Snow Geese already from the bird banding lab (check out my previous post for photos of the geese).

Bird number one (TR47):

Bird number two (TU72):

As I expected, both were captured and banded on the breeding grounds of Bylot Island.  That's the same as the bird Ken and I found last spring.  Here's a map to give you a sense of how far these birds still have to travel (remember it is still very much winter where they are going!):
A is where I found the geese, B is where they have to get too! Just 3000km to go...
