A little tardy on turning in one of the bands I got this year. The results:

Banded in: Oregon
Date Banded: 07/30/1995


The other 2 Mallard bands I got this year; one was from Saskatewan and the other Northern California (Redding area). Certificates at home. The Saskatewan bird was 2yrs old, the other was only 5 months old.

HA HA

I've done a good job of avoiding 'em, but took my chances last year and got lucky with 3 bands, and 0 richochet wounds! Whew.


I read in DU mag about 2 months back that the oldest Mallard was like 23yrs old. Pretty crazy.
