WCCBP Student Program: The USFWS and the CWS have had an ongoing duck banding effort In Canada for many years. Numerous ducks are captured and banded at over 20 sites in prairie Canada. The proposed study is to provide students to continue banding ducks at summer breeding grounds. The objective of this study is to band ducks at summer breeding grounds through participation in the cooperative US - Canada waterfowl banding program. Selected individuals and vendors will be supervised in the field with regard to data processing by a Service employee, and may have to work with local indigenous population on Indian Reservations. Individuals will conduct a waterfowl banding operations at several locations located within various provinces of Canada, to include extremely remote sites in the Northwest Territories. These individuals ultimately will provide a summary report of banding, along with complete data records or all birds banded. The report will contain, at minimum: summary of station conditions (water levels, weather, migration phrenology, etc); banding schedules detailing dates, species, age, sex., banding locations, and band numbers for individual birds banded; summary of banding accomplishments tabulated by species, age, and sex; contacts for station access, inventory of equipment to include the location, amount, and condition of equipment; and any special problems encountered or suggestions for improved operations.
