    Paul Link is THE MAN when it comes to banding waterfowl. He and Larry Reynolds are two of the best in the field and the LDWF is fortunate to have them.
    Listen to your elders. Not because they are always right but because they have more experiences of being wrong.

    Another Spec journey, this one non stop posted below.

    She flew non-stop 1,541 miles reaching a top speed of 93mph over western ND, stopped for 4 hours near Hickory Ridge, AR (her ground speed slowed to just 31 mph; must have stalled out with the front), and settled into NE LA at 1451 on 7Oct. 1,732 miles in 30 hours, and well over 11,000 miles in the 11 months since I captured her.

    From "Waterfowl Tomorrow" ;

    The Blue Winged Teal makes some pretty crazy travel plans as can be read in this excellent book with one of the coolest being a BWT that was banded in Saskatchewan and 6 months later had flown 7,000 miles where it was killed in Peru.

    Another of the BWT is that of a teal killed atop a 13,000' volcanic lake in Ecuador shortly after being banded in Manitoba Canada some 4000 miles away.
