Release report on duck banding OSHKOSH, Neb - A total of 423 ducks was captured and banded during recent months as part of continuing research on Nebraska waterfowl, says Game and Parks Commission waterfowl biologist John Sweet. The birds included mallards, blue-winged and green-winged teal, pintails, gadwalls, shovellers, wood ducks, and redheads. They were banded in Cherry, Rock, and Holt, counties and in a Sand Hills wetland area of Nance, Merrick, and Platte counties. All ducks were immediately immediately sexed, aged banded, banded, and released at the capture sites. Waterfowl banding has provided much useful information to biologists, Sweet said. It makes possible the tracing of movement, breeding and wintering areas, hunter harvest, and other waterfowl mortality. The ducks were captured by traps and by hand during their flightless molting season.
