I am having computer problems which is delaying blog posts these days, but on March 27, 2007 we headed to Thickson Woods for the first day of banding of the year. Had some fun untangling the nets and getting them up but we eventually succeeded!
The first bird of the year was this one-A Golden Crowned Kinglet-we caught a few of those and some Juncos as well.
After the Golden Crowned Kinglets we had a couple or recaptured Black Capped Chickadees, this one was a perfect example of their cheerful charm.........
It was a short first day though not as short as our second day where it started pouring right after we put up the nets, down they came, LOL!
