Detailed Description

USGS Biologists conduct a banding opertation every year at the top of the Arctic Circle. A molt drive means pushing molting flightless snow geese into a catch pen in order to band them and collar a lucky few. The collars then collect information on where the lesser snow geese go after they leave Alaska.
