Banding in Snow. May 8.

That title is not kidding, folks. May 8 in Wisconsin. Banding in rain. Then sun. Then wind. Then dark and cold. Snow. And then sleet. And all from about 8 - 10:30.

Did get 31 birds and 12 species, though - whoo-hoo! I will spread out the photos over a couple of posts.

First up - a snazzy male American Goldfinch. This time of year it is hard not to be impressed by male avian plumage.

The House Wren is so tiny, but what a song that spills out!

First warbler of the year! Male Pine Warbler. Little bit lemon, little bit lime. The yellow and green/olive just look great on this guy.
