    Shot my 3rd band this morning! Unbelievably this ringneck was carrying a transmitter inside its body, banded this past August in Manitoba, Canada. This video will explain the surgery.

    Call USFWS at (803) 478-2217. The duck will be banded and have a short wire antenna sticking out of its back. They need the data and transmitter. You will keep the band
    Plant it they will come.

    Nice. We put them on a bunch of pintails, but I never saw one killed. Ugly sloot should not have been hanging out with those fine looking summer ducks!

    Correction** The Duck was banded in Georgia, for some reason USGS has no information on this band.

    My partner kill a mallard a few years ago that was wearing a satellite tracking harness. Called it in and they said it had stoppped working 3 weeks prior. They only wanted the number off the transmitter and said to keep everything. Currently it’s on a bird hanging on our wall at camp. No band though.

    I'd hang that thing on the bottom of your laynard. Anywhere up high.. you might get your eye prodded.

    Please PM me info immediately, we’ve been looking for who killed it.

    Thanks.
    Be proactive about improving public waterfowl habitat in South Carolina. It's not going to happen by itself, and our help is needed. We have the potential to winter thousands of waterfowl on public grounds if we fight for it.

    Very cool Micah! Reach out to the wildlife folks in GA and whoever banded the bird will give you more details.
    Listen to your elders. Not because they are always right but because they have more experiences of being wrong.
