DU regional biologist, agency partners band Dusky Canada geese in Alaska

In July, Ducks Unlimited Regional Biologist Kelly Warren joined biologists from the Alaska Department of Game and Fish and US Forest Service (USFS) to collar and band more than 600 Dusky Canada geese near Cordova, Alaska, on the Copper River Delta.

“These geese nest primarily on the Copper River Delta in Alaska,” Warren said. “They are the only geese that winter almost exclusively in the Willamette Valley, lower Columbia River and the coast of Oregon and southwest Washington.”
