Banding birds on the North Fields, April 2013


I tried a new location for bird banding lab with the Ornithology students last week.  It seemed to be a great spot with birds singing and calling all around us, but our capture rate was low: just 2 birds in about 5 hours.  The ones we caught were pretty sweet, however.  Check out these adorable little feathered dinosaurs to brighten your mood in the wake of yesterday’s tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon.
