Scope and Content Note

These volumes document the Conservation Department's program of waterfowl banding and tracking. Volumes contain the following information about each bird which was banded: species, sex, age, band number, source, date banded, and place liberated. For birds which were later recovered, the place and method of recovery are noted along with any additional remarks. Entries in each volume are listed consecutively by band number. These records relate to such research topics as species distribution and migration patterns.
