The other day I photographed and reported a neck-banded Canada Goose that
appears to be part of the over-summering flock at Kah Tai Lagoon, Port
Townsend.

I reported it to the Bird Banding Lab and just heard back. It was first
banded as an adult (or sub-adult) on July 17, 2018 near Cordova, Alaska, so
almost exactly three years ago. It appears it was summering there in 2018
and now is summering in Washington, which seems surprising to me. I cannot
speak to the subspecies.
