Duck Banding at Corbett Park

February 9, 2022

On Thursday and/or Friday, February 10th and 11th, New York State Department of Conservation staff, along with SUNY Brockport faculty and students, will be banding ducks at Corbett Park in the Village of Brockport. Live-trapping and banding ducks is a regular part of waterfowl management across North America, and NYSDEC works with its federal and international partners to contribute to ongoing studies and population monitoring. Ducks are baited with cracked corn and enter a walk-in trap, which will be monitored by staff, and are then briefly handled and receive a metal leg band with a unique number assigned by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The ducks are then released at the site immediately afterward. By trapping and banding right in Brockport, Environmental Science & Ecology students are able to get hands-on experience with wildlife management and contribute to long-term, international studies.

Please contact the NYSDEC Avon wildlife office (585-226-5380) or NYSDEC regional waterfowl biologist Christina Hoh (315-365-2134) if you have any questions.
