My buddy from Ontario sent me this picture last night. I looked closer at the sweet hybrid he shot and saw it was banded! Last week he shot a miner band. Some guys have all the luck!
True to an extent. They do band at the Miner Sanctuary not more than 20 miles away from his place. The band is from Wisconsin so I’d say that one is pretty lucky. He’s short a few miners, some tarsals, and just regular old single banded birds. If/when I go there once covid lifts, I won’t complain if I shoot a miner tarsal, even if it is within 20 miles of the sanctuary. That would be a cool bird to check off the list.
