A few of the more interesting encounters that I had while banding were;
A Chipping Sparrow that was banded in the Huron Natl. Forest in Michigan
was spending the winter in Watkinsville.
Canada Goose-banded and neck collared nr. Churchill, Manitoba was
wintering in Gainesville.
Another Chipping Sparrow that I banded in 1984 was retrapped in 1991 by
me approx. .25 miles from the former banding site. At the time, this
was the second oldest wild CHSP known.
In 1984, 228 Purple Finch were banded in my yard. There were never more
than 15-20 there at any one time. If I wasn't banding, we would have
thought that that was all that there were. I could say the same for the
58 Pine Warbler that I banded that same winter.
Other records, if anyone is interested.
