    either the banders haven't turned in the band info to USGS yet (common and likely if it was just banded in August) or the banders have turned in the band info and USGS hasn't processed what they turned in yet (also common).

    Year 2 — Movement Maps Through Dec. 11, 2018
    Delta Waterfowl’s pioneering ring-necked duck research is back on the air with a new crop of radio- implanted ducks. And this season, we have quadrupled the number of marked ringnecks.
    Beginning on Nov. 28, Delta Waterfowl and research partners inserted transmitters in 61 ringnecks — 30 originating in South Carolina and 31 more in South Georgia/North Florida. Last year in November, Delta implanted radios in 15 ringneck hens in the same area of Georgia/Florida. The transmitters allowed Dr. Mark McConnell and graduate assistant Tori Mezebish of the University of Georgia to track movements of the ringneck hens on their wintering grounds, as well as to follow the ducks’ spring migration to the breeding grounds in Canada before the battery life expired on the transmitters.
    Because of improvements in the transmitter technology and a change in the way the radios are programmed to send data, we expect battery life will extend our tracking efforts to a full year this time around. As a result, we should be able to follow the migration this coming spring, track movements on the breeding grounds and capture the path of next fall’s migration, too. One other difference to note: Among the 61 implanted ringnecks, two are drakes.
    Some highlights from the maps:
    South Carolina birds:
    • All were captured on a small flooded agriculture wetland just east of Lake Marion.
    • Four females were shot last weekend, but all transmitters were recovered and will be reused. • Movements have been minimal, longest moves were by three birds that moved 14 miles to a warm-water pond at a power plant, which gets heavy use during cold snaps.
    • Average home range for the period was 10,213 acres, largest was 34,175 acres.
    Georgia and Florida Red Hills birds:
    • Again, most birds have stayed very local using these plantations: Four Oaks, Dixie, Pinckney Hill, Black Water, Rodina and Aucilla Run, Norias, and Tall Timbers
    • The majority of locations are on managed ponds, with only a few birds using larger waters of Lake Iamonia, Miccosukee or Bowen Mill Pond.
    • Home range size averaged 15,433 acres.
    Tracking maps and information are provided by Dr. Mark McConnell and graduate assistant Tori Mezebish of the University of Georgia.

    Did it spark when you shot it?

    Congrats on the bird!

    There was no band info at first, assumed it was Georgia because the studies I found on the internet were in Georgia. It was banded in SC slightly north of 95

    you'll get the band info once its entered.

    and you need to contact delta to see if its their transmitter. I'll PM you the contact info....

    and yes, you are one lucky SOB!
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.

    It was probably one of the Ringnecks from this recent project. 28 hens and 2 drakes were implanted with transmitters.

    Im not a fan of SCWA but I do think this is interesting research.

    Great project. The following info is likely incorrect according to the map below...

    "Movements have been minimal, longest moves were by three birds that moved 14 miles to a warm-water pond at a power plant, which gets heavy use during cold snaps."

    That is the 300 acre pond at the IP Paper plant. It isn't warm water as far as I know but has been holding many thousands of ringnecks and more for decades...

    Any time I see SCWA and Delta Waterfowl in the same sentence I gag. Makes me feel all dirty inside.
