Just got my info back on my first banded goose. She was an old bird. Born in 2000 and banded in 2001. I got her the middle of December in 2007. My bro in law got his info back from a banded goose he shot during the same trip. It was banded this year when it was too young to fly making it a yearling. We shot these birds the same day but out of different flocks. Is it common to have birds that old? I can see 4 or 5 years old, but 7 seems pretty old to me.
