its done at the bird sanctuary in Morrisburg Ont. there is a HUGE landing\holding pen that is put together every fall, the ducks know a certain time of day is feeding time, so down they come into the landing pen, people in waders "herd" them into the holding pen (top is chain link fencing) usually up to 300 are done each time. volunteers go into the holding pen and pick up each duck, (you take both wings and sort of pull them back till they touch) this holds the duck without hurting him, then they put the band on and check out the duck.
