  1. I’m struck by the dark stripe through the eye area of the birds in the first two of these photos. Once Mother Nature figured out that pattern she used it widely: Lots of tropical reef fish species sport a stripe across their eye, too.

  3. It is always such a treat to stop by your place and see the wondrous birds.
    I enjoy seeing them being gently held by you or your helpers.
    Thanks, as always, for sharing.

  4. Are the Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers quiet birds to hold or do they peck like other woodpeckers? Nice collection of birds! You guys must have so much fun.

  5. Love all the photos, but I’m partial to that really cute junco. ;o)

  6. I love seeing the close ups of your birds, do they really sit still when their feet are held, do they struggle or are they calm? Thanks for sharing them with us.

    I always love coming here for my dose of birds. For some reason I’m surprised at the yellow bellied sapsucker. I thought the yellow would be brighter and didn’t expect such a red head.

  16. I love the variety of birds you band. Keep hoping to get a good photo of the sapsucker – they are too fast for me!

  17. @ KGMom – thanks and you are very kind! Glad you enjoyed!
    @ Linda – well normally the Sapsuckers draw Tom sap from my hand whenever I capture pictures like this but this guy was more interested in everyone around them! Thanks and we only know the fun way to enjoy life!
    @ Mary C. thanks and the junco was very cute! Also made a good birdquiz picture for the Banding Assistants!
    @ Beth – thanks and we only post the pictures where they are sitting still! We have many shots where they are flapping their wings!
    @ Jayne – they are very cute! Today I was looking at a Junco Nest with 5 eggs! Hmm maybe I should have captured a picture of it??
    @ Pam – thanks
    @ Jen – Bravo and a wonderful job you did taking it out!
    @ Birdlady – Thanks
    @ Marty – thanks
    @ Sarah . . . thanks and hope you get many visitors!
    @ David – Thanks
    @ Lana – thanks
    @ Bo – thanks and sometimes you can see the yellow from the field but in the hand it is more obvious! Guess it depends on the lighting!
    @ Shelley – thanks and they are fast!
