Diving Duck Spring Banding

Staff Lead: Josh Osborn

We band ~1000 Lesser Scaup and other diving ducks along the Illinois River each spring as a part of larger efforts to band diving ducks across the flyway. This effort typically takes place in March, and we are glad to have classes join us to assist, please contact Director Auriel Fournier (auriel@illinos.edu) a few months out to coordinate.
