Survival rates of Lesser Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens caerulescens) were ex- amined based on recoveries and recaptures of about 350,000 geese banded at breeding colonies in northern Canada, at migration stopover points in the Dakotas and Missouri, and on the wintering grounds in Louisiana and Texas. First-year survival rates for goslings banded on the breeding grounds varied from 10 to 70% of adult survival rates. Much of the juvenile mortality occurred on the breeding grounds or early on the… Expand
