A great day corralling up some Canada geese with the CT DEEP! Several CWA and CT Delta Waterfowl members were in attendance! Adult Canada geese molt during this time of the year, and grow new flight feathers. Kelly Kubik, DEEP waterfowl biologist, applied the metal bands to the legs. He also notes the sex of the goose, the location, and whether the goose is adult or juvenile. This information gets logged into the banding program set up by USFWS.
Overall, a fun, educational, and memorable experience! Thank you to all the volunteers who help make this program possible!
