That bird was sporting a bird band. Banding allows scientists to track movements of individual birds to study dispersal and migration, behavior and social structure, life-span and survival rate, reproductive success and population growth. Analysis of banding information from game birds is completed annually and is essential for developing hunting regulations and for detecting changes in waterfowl populations.
