Susan and I went to the bird banding at Fort Morgan on March 28th. It was my first time there...Susan's second. We went to both banding stations, but the quieter one was where the two Freds were. I did enjoy meeting Bob Sargent. He was great with the kids.
(1) Susan is holding and then releasing a warbler. (2)The table where the birds are measured and info input into the computer. (3)The female cardinal was the most fiesty of all the birds banded. She fussed the whole time. (4)I added the picture of the little girl to show that even the little people are given the opportunity to release the birds after they are banded and measured. (5) This shows the being measured. (6) Just as we were leaving the park we saw this Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. It was caught and banded the next day.
