Read the full story from KSL.

Each year for more than a century, state wildlife biologists place metal bands on various ducks, geese and swans with the purpose of tracking migration patterns. Now, a new comprehensive website allows anyone to see where those birds went after they were tagged — and there are some interesting places.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources launched Utah’s Waterfowl Band Returns Tuesday. The website features data collected from thousands of waterfowl — including the American wigeon, Canada goose, cinnamon teal, Gadwall, green-winged teal, mallard, northern pintail, and redhead duck — that have been tagged by state biologists over time.
