I’ve just uploaded the VARC summer blog with all the activity from a busy period of monitoring and banding at Colony Farm.
Included in this blog are a photo essay on our hybrid Anna’s / Rufous Hummingbird which wasn’t the only hybrid hummer we caught! Also included is a photo essay on breeding characteristics and the characteristics of birds in juvenal plumage. Lots of great photos of baby birds, a Gray-headed Cowbird (check it out!), why Northern Rough-winged Swallows are called just that (rough-winged) and a nice story of a rehabbed Barred Owl release:

Great information, I enjoyed reading this and seeing the pictures of the widdle baby birdies!

I’m confused. How many years ago was this?

Yup, Stilt Sandpiper.

GHO from this morning.

Lovely shots, Keith.

WOW... Just a few hours and I'm not able to edit. […]
