RE: [CALBIRDS] Information on Neck collars on Tundra Swans
Yes, many Tundras have been banded in Alaska for many years. I have read the letter/3-number codes on seven collared adult Tundras this winter.
I can get you the region if you can read the color and alphanumeric code.

Subject: [CALBIRDS] Information on Neck collars on Tundra Swans
Has anyone heard of banded Tundra Swans with neck collars or is it only
Trumpeter Swans that have neck collar bands?
We had a swan on the Fall River Mills CBC that had a neck collar and
might have been a Trumpeter Swan but was only seen in foggy weather and
could not be refound when the weather cleared.
Appreciate any input,
