Feeder Fidelity - Filling the bird feeders inspires us to get out in the winter. But are these the same feeder birds who were here before? That's what we want to know.
Feeder fidelity banding brings many interesting species: dark-eyed juncos, northern cardinal, tufted titmouse, black-capped chickadee, and white-breasted nuthatch. It continues to amaze me as we remove another junco from the nets. UNBANDED. How can there be any left unbanded? We are grateful for the help from Dan and Steven, along with student helpers from Northampton Community College - We are also grateful for the support of our friends throughout the year. I am looking ahead on the calendar and I know the warm weather is coming. Enjoy the snow!
