More on marked Snow Goose at Shorts Pond, 4 Jan 2009

The marked Greater Snow Goose I observed on Shorts Pond (Bridgehampton) - yellow neck collar with RE43 in black letters - turns out to have be a female and was banded by researchers from the Université Laval on Bylot Island, Nunavut, Canada in August 2008. When captured, this individual was already an adult and so far this is the only re-sighting since it was banded.
