Duck Banding

This summer, waterfowl biologists across the state and the nation are capturing ducks and placing identification bands on them. The leg bands help biologists to learn about the migration patterns, harvest rates and life expectancy of the birds.

Watch this video to learn more about the leg banding process and its importance as a management tool.

Check out the Pennsylvania Game Commission Facebook page this month for another duck banding video!
