This Canada goose has band number 1038-06303.

Species: Canada Goose
Age: Hatched in 2006 or earlier.
Sex: Female
Location: 31 KM W. Rigolet, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Found on the Quequechan River Rail Trail 2/14/2021. 

A goose that is 15 years old that has traveled over 1000miles, from Labrador, Canada to Massachusetts, USA.
In addition, the goose is missing a web toe. One tough goose!
I'll keep on eye on the goose to see if it loiters in the area during the warmer months or if it leaves, possibly traveling back to Canada.

UPDATE: As of March 12, 2021 the goose was not observed.
