Bird Banding with Chris Earley

I think I can speak for the class when I say that this was such a great experience for all of us. Actually getting to hold the birds and physically being with nature is a whole different experience then just visualizing it. I never realized how light and delicate the birds were. I have noticed now every time I see a small bird I end up looking at their feet to see if it has been tagged. I realized I have so much more to learn about birds, all their sizes, colours, and different species interest me. How you can tell the age from the feathers shape and so much more. Thank you for this experience!
