Banded Goose Provides Key,
To Tale of Religious Work
The tale of a bird-banding or
ganisation that performs a job of
missionary work while keeping a
record of bird habits was sent to a
Morehead City hunter recently fol
lowing a hunting trip in which he
killed a banded Canadian goose.
On Dec. 19, 1949, Eugene Seda
of Morehead City was hunting be
tween Lake Mattamuskeet and
Swan Quarter in Hyde County. He !
shot two Canadian geese during
the day and on the leg of one of
them he found an aluminum band.
On the band was stamped. "He
careth for you," 1st Pet. 5:7; HS
46; and Write Jack Miner, Kings
viHe, Ont., Canada."
Seda wrote to the address "nd
this week received a letter ex
plaining the cryptic letters and
figures on the band.
Letter Explains Band
The letter said the bird was
banded at the Jack Miner Bird |
Sanctuary. Kingsville. Oitario.
Canada, which is located just 25 ;
miles from Detroit, Mich. The late
Jack Miier, who died five years j
go, founded his bird sanctuary in ;
1904, the letter explained.
He was the pioneer bird bander'
on the North American continent 1
and banded his first duck in Au-j
gist of 1909. This bird was shot j
n January of 1910 and this const i :
tutes the first record when a bird i
was banded and shot.
The object of banding birds is
to study their exact migration 1
route, to learn how they live and
to learn how lar they travel. All
such information is valuable from
an "educational and scientific
standpoint aid is given to the,
Canadian and United States gov- 1
eminent*, who in turn release the
data to ail schools lor educational :
The letter S or F is stamped in j
each band to indicate the season,
spring or fall, in which the bird |
was banded. The date is also
stamped into the band. The *11846'
stamped in the band Seda found
indicated that the bird was band
ed in the spring of 1946.
In addition to carrying out a
purely educational purpose, the
bands serve a religious purpose al- 1
so. the letter explained. On e?ch
of the bands a verse of scripture
has been printed. On Seda's band j
was printed, "He careth for you," ;
1st Pet. 5:7."
This quotation was taken from (
the seventh verse of the second
chapter of the first book of Peter
in the Bible. The complete quo
tation is "Casting all your qpre j
upon Him for He careth for you." j
According to the letter, Mfrfe'r
was not a religious fanatic but' he
believed in God and placed a1
verse of scripture on each band in :
order to pass on God's promises.
These verses have been invaluable i
among the Eskimos and Indians !
of Northern Canada who shoot j
the' geese and take the band to1
their missionaries to get an inter-!
pretation of the Bible verse.
The missionary in turn takes
the verse for his text on Sunday
and all the natives turn out to
church to see "What God said that j
time." One newspaper gives Jack
Miner credit for more real home I
missionary work than any other,
Canadian. Since his death Miner's
three sons have carried on the
