I just saw a duck with a red band around its leg with the number 4 on itWhats this mean?
thanks for your help!!
banding on wild birds is often done for scientific research, it helps to keep track of the population, migration patterns etc :)
The duck was banded for scientific research of his/her behavior in the wild.
research for migration i used to see a few pigeons with those 8)
Even my parakeets have those. And they stay at home :/
