|Hatching Year (HY) Tree Swallow (TRES)|
|Hatching Year male Downy Woodpecker (DOWO)|
|HY Carolina Wren|
|Quiz bird from Oak Openings|
|Tom helps at Oak Openings and doesn't mind the heat. |
Nor does the Viceroy who loves the salts on his hat!
|Kelly does not mind the smelly job of banding herons and egrets on West Sister Island.|
|Mike also is in the spotlight with this Great Egret (GREG) chick on West Sister Island.|
Now about that quiz bird: It's a HY Lark Sparrow. The very short tail which is just growing in gives this one away, but HY sparrows can be a handful to ID.
Enjoy the beauty of the season!
