Nice job, it takes a steady dog to band spring 'doodles.
I used to band for USFWS with my old Brittany who was steady to wing and shot. It was great "free" spring work for the dog and I knew it was doing a good deed for the timberdoodles. My "pup" (2+ year old Brittany) is still working on becoming steady to the flush, so he's at least a year off from banding.
Awesome picture of the chick! Thanks for sharing[up]
