Do you use streamers on marks for teaching marking concepts?

When working on marking we want to do everything possible to make sure the dog sees the mark.
AMEN & AMEN!

I ran a 500 yard mark (between two shorter marks) yesterday with white streamers on the birds. Even with the streamers the marks were challenging for the dogs to spot. They cannot mark what they cannot see. (by the way both dogs I ran on the super long mark got it having to traverse two ditches full of water enroute).
