Tag, my 6 month old Pudelpointer, retrieved his first duck (a BW Teal) the other day and it was banded! What a first duck...eh?
I wanted to get a pic of Tag sitting and holding the Teal with the band showing but he doesn't know the hold command just yet. This is my best shot of him.
Banded 8-19-2013 near Imperial Saskatchewan
Recovered 9-17-2013 near Eaton Colorado (NE CO)
A distance of about 750 miles as the crow flies in 30 days
