Who wants to see some birdies?  We attended a spring migration bird banding last month.  It's so interesting to see the whole process.  Extreme care is taken to ensure the bird's safety.  Of course, I took the camera.   Cheesy

The bander is blowing gently on the bird's chest so she can determine the fat content.  This is an Orange-crowned warbler.



This is a Yellow warbler.



After doing the banding and recording all of the bird's measurements, the bander placed the bird in my husband's hands.  It was quite content to stay there until the bander tipped his hands and it flew off into the trees unharmed.  It's so small!
