Snow Goose (Anser caerulescens) User: Brian  (See all photos - 917)
Canada (Ontario) Near Casselman - I spotted three neck-banded birds among the 60,000 present today. I always note the band code and send off the information. In the past the birds have usually indicated banding on Bylot Island (north end of Baffin Island) in the Arctic. When I get the result (may be a few weeks) I'll post it.

UPDATE: This female Greater Snow Goose was hatched in 2015 or earlier and was banded near Pond Inlet in Nunavut on Aug. 12, 2016. Pond Inlet is near Bylot Island.

Wonderful capture, the tag is so clear, some body might give some information where it was banded.
