Duck and goose banding on Selawik National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska,

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Prompted by declining northern pintail (Anas acuta) numbers in North America and the need to monitor other dabbler species, the Selawik NWR (Refuge) embarked upon a trapping and banding effort. During the 1992 waterfowl breeding population survey, the Refuge was second only to the Yukon Delta NWR in total number of pintail, yet had a higher density of all duck species than any other Alaskan stratum (Conant and Groves 1992). Mean-while white-fronted goose banding has continued on the Refuge in support of Migratory Bird Management's ongoing management effort. Although little is known about the summer and winter distribution, age structure, and mortality of the Refuge's pintail population, continued trapping and banding of white-fronted geese further enhances that data which is currently on-hand. Further trapping and banding of both pintail and white-fronted geese provides baseline data and contributes towards building a sound waterfowl management program for the Refuge, and throughout Alaska.
