Dr. Stan Chace of Alturas, Calif., seemingly defied all odds back in the fall of 1962. Home from school on vacation in October, Chace bagged a banded Canada goose
. In December, he shot another banded Canada. When he sat down and compared the bands, Chace found them to be consecutively numbered - the first 518-31661 and the second 518-31662. The birds had been banded in 1959 at Goose Lake. Photo by Bill Buckley.
