This weekend, I had the pleasure of volunteering at RPBO's banding site for the first time. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience with one exception. The 5 am start time was for the birds!
Not only is the experience helping with my bird identification, I'm also learning a lot about aging the birds. This little flycatcher was one of the many birds that stopped in for a visit. Its buffy wingbars identify it as a juvenile.
