January 14 - Info on banded Canada Goose

Two days ago I photographed a neck-collared Canada Goose while birding in eastern Nassau County. Another picture of the bird is below.

I reported the sighting to the US Bird Banding Laboratory and they have now sent me the banding information on the bird. The neck collar (Y4Y4) corresponds to band 1058-28297. It was banded as a gosling (sexed as a female) at Varennes, Quebec, north of Montreal on June 28, 2012.

Interestingly, Sean Sime tells me that a Canada Goose wearing a neck band has been present in Prospect Park, Brooklyn the last two winters and it was banded in the same place in 2013.
