The Duck Banding Recovery Map Server allows users to map the banding site locations of Canadian banded ducks recovered from a specific state or province. To help keep the database small and manageable only ducks banded between 1986 and 2003 are included and all non duck species were removed. Too see a complete listing of the species in the database please scroll down this page or click here

To select a recovery region simply select one of the drop down menu's under the "Select a Recovery Region" title. Upon choosing a region (province or state) the map will refresh the map to illustrate the banding locations in Canada. A statistics table will also be generated with the top 3 Canadian provinces and the top 5 recovered species of ducks recovered in your chosen region.

The data used in this application was obtained from the USGS
