Kuneytown and Seneca Falls DU Chapter partner with DEC, USFWS to band and release ducks

Kuneytown members, members of the Seneca Falls Ducks Unlimited chapter,and many more volunteers participated in a duck banding program this past Saturday. The Dept of Interior Fish and Wildlife Service, NYS DEC and Montezuma and DU biologists did a great job involving everyone and educating us on the process that is so important to the data collection that is needed to monitor the health and population of the ducks. Thanks to everyone that participated!  If I failed to mention anyone, I apologize.  Here a few pictures --  more to come soon.
