Aconcagua was banded as a male, but was obviously a female.  She was the youngest (just a small white fluff ball) when banded and grew to be the largest that year before leaving Rochester.  She will forever be listed as a male on the official list, unless she turns up somewhere in the future.  Most they get right, some they get wrong.   Wink

I knew there was another one famously obviously mis-banded, just couldn't remember who.

And I seem to recall we were pretty sure Jemison was female too.

I thought it was the other way around..Jemison was banded female, thought to be male.

My brain is feeling fuzzy on this one. I just know I have Jemison listed as female on the family tree.
