Pretty cute. Did you notice the leg-band?

I think it's his membership card to the country club. either that or his green card. ;)

both of this pair were banded - Fish and Wildlife probably tracking them to see how far they travel. This pair was lucky! Others have giant yellow bands around their necks.

Washington Biological Survey-Wash.Biol.Surv. They come with cooking instructions.

OMG I really AM ROFL!!

Dang good thing I just didn't get the joke at all when I saw this comment when at work! I so totally didn't get it I just plugged the whole 'Washington Biological Survey-Wash.Biol.Surv.' into google.

and of course this is what popped up: Tags on migratory birds had to be changed

a. Bands on the legs used to have abbreviation for Washington Biological Survey: Wash. Biol. Surv.

b. Got letter from a backwoods camper:

"Dear sirs, While camping, shot one of your birds, a crow. Followed cooking instructions on the leg, and I want to tell you that bird tasted just horrible."

c. Bands no longer abbreviated

I prefer mine poached.

ooooh, poor babies! poached goose, though??? Funny thing is - who knows. These little babies might be some of the big adults I've been photographing lately! And LOL, a comment chain from the old days before I'd realized the hazards of carrying on conversations with Guy while at work, ha-ha.
