    HOW TO READ A BAND
    The letters on the band will tell you the origin of the bird.

    (EXAMPLE BAND BELOW)
    Say... the band number reads, NPA 7 07 AT 1089

    The ( NPA ) means it originated from the National Pigeon Association.

    The (7) is the band size.

    The (07) is the year the pigeon was born.

    The (AT) is the band alphabetical sequence.

    The (1089) is a unique serial number for identifying that bird

    oops I forgot to include the contact info for the NPA. Contact the NPA at [email protected]. If this isn't one of theirs they can probably tell you who the band belongs to.
    And i have no idea why a duck would have a pigeon band on it??

    Actually I think NPA might stand for Northern Pintail Hen.
    Here is a link to a study that they did on Northern Pintails that they banded in North Western Alaska and recovered all over the place from California, Texas, Mexico, etc.

    http://alaska.usgs.gov/science/biolo...l_JWM_2005.pdf

    The original study they did did not seem to use the band you have but there might now be a new study and I think contacting the people that published the Pintail study might be a very good place to start.

    I have reported a lot of the AVISE & Laurel MD bands they have a 1-800# on them and are metal, this one is unique it's plastic and no 1-800 #?
