Bird Banding at Sunset Park

Since the weather was so nice (also read: “freezing cold”), Emily Thomas decided to try banding this morning. There was quite a crowd there from the local bird club, but unfortunately we didn’t catch many birds. The species we captured included Northern Cardinals, Dark-eyed Juncos, White-throated Sparrow, and House Finches. Here are some photos from this morning:
