Thanks Phil, like Mr. Guthrie, I too responded and got the same message, but it's all good. Re: your comment on the extralimital *Little Egret* Hyannis (Cape Cod) and *Northern Lapwing* in MA. I just got a call from Gary Strauss who reports that he made the hard core run and picked up both birds

2012-12-12 Thread Peter Priolo
Just thought it would be exciting to hear that a Canada Goose that I reported last week with a yellow neck collar was collared in Denmark in 2009 along with Greater White Fronted geese. This individual hadn't been seen since banding. I saw it in sod field on Rt 51 in Eastport, Long Island. Reminds

Please accept my amendment to my post earlier today: the Canada Goose was collared in Greenland, not Denmark. The researchers are from Denmark. Peter Priolo Center Moriches -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES

As of late this afternoon, the Black-headed Gull continues to be seen north of the dam at Mill Pond in Setauket. The bird stayed north of the tidal creek, picking about the benthos with a group of mallards. It would occasionally lift off and circle the area sometimes leaving sight, but would

I, too, can add to this thread. On November 9, 2011 on a farm field in Mattituck, in a flock of ~ 350 Canada Geese, there were 3 with neck collars, leg bands or leg flags on them. 2 of these birds were from the same banding study in west Greenland, that is referenced below. The 1st CAGO
