Summary
Abstract: The Banding Retrieval File contains summarized records for data through the
last full calendar year for all game birds banded since 1908, and for all
nongame birds banded since 1954. A summary record includes all birds of the

Purpose: Banding and encounter data are gathered and filed for the purpose of
facilitating migratory bird research in North America. Waterfowl banding and
encounter data are used by federal, state and provincial wildlife agencies in
combination with other data sets, to help set federal hunting regulations. In
addition, many states and provinces use banding and encounter data as a
component of both game and nongame studies. Both banding and encounter data
can be combined with other data for work on bird distribution, migration,
survival, mortality, population size, and other demographic parameters.
