The Trend Continues . . .

We banded 12 new birds and had 6 recaptures of 9 different species.  We banded our 5th Eastern Kingbird of the season - a hatch year as evident by the whitish tips to wing coverts and the lack of orange in the crown.

This Common Ground-Dove was a recapture.  He was originally banded last fall on September 9th as an adult (AHY).  This photo really illustrates the amount of rufous on the underside of the wing.

  1. The Common Ground Dove looks like a little angel with it's pretty rusty wings out!
