Subject: [CT Birds] Canada Geese From Greeland
On 10/23 I had two neck banded Canada Geese at Greenbacker Pond in Durham.
The neck band codes started with a "G" which may indicated that they were
banded in Greenland. The birds were "G3L" and "GVP". I have since heard
back from the bander and the birds were banded in July 2014 in Isunngua
Greenland. Greenland banded geese have been reported in the area before but
It is always interesting to see them.
