WILDLIFE RESEARCH — Volunteers helped Washington Fish and Wildlife Department researchers round up and band 894 Canada geese in Eastern Washington during the past two weeks. More than 80 of the geese were captured in the Spokane and Liberty Lake area, includind 30 at Gonzaga University.
The roundup was timed for the molt, when the adults couldn't fly, making it easy to herd them and their broods into enclosures.
Read on for the tally of birds captured at 14 sites during this ongoing study headed by waterfowl expert Mikal Moore.
