Report Banded Mallards

ADF&G’s waterfowl program has been banding mallards over wintering in Anchorage for the past 2 years. They would like everyone to keep an eye out for mallards sporting red plastic leg bands with white alphanumeric codes. Read the code from the bottom up. Reports of resights would be much appreciated. They need to know the code (photos are great), date, where and how many other mallards present. Info can be sent to:
