It is also possible that the bird is an escapee. Owners can get metal bands with personally unique numbers and also use color bands for easy ID purposes. These numbers are not reported to USGS. There i also the possibility that the bird was banded outside the US. A co-worker recovered a Pintail banded in Japan. Lots of possibilities.
