Other SWAT banding post!
American Goldfinch by Sarah (aka WheelieGirl)
Over the past few days we have had two blogger reports about their visit to the SWAT Banding Station last Monday. Many have already seen Jennifer’s post on her SWAT visit and the similarities of the Chestnut-sided Warbler and Yellow Warbler (if not go visit her blog now!!).
But I am 99.9% sure you have not had a chance to visit WheelieGirls blog??? Sarah is a wonderful young lady who I have known since she was a little girl and her family has been visiting my banding station since 1999. She’s becoming a stunning photographer (uses a Nikon, High Five) and I just learned last Monday that she has her own Blog! That Monday she did a post on her SWAT visit and you can see some of her pictures that she captured!! Another stunning post that you should check out is her American Robin post . . . . hmmm future nature photographer??? I think so!

Love the photo of the goldfinch.
I have had goldfinches this year–the first time I can recall seeing them. They have been visiting my bird feeder–love them.

There are dozens of goldfinch in my parents’ yard. They swoop around, chasing each other and chattering like swallows. It’s fun to watch them…
I enjoyed reading the other blogs, too. Makes me wish I could come to a banding session! Alas, you’re too far away for a morning’s visit…

I read Sarah’s posts and I agree she has a really nice blog and takes wonderful photos. I couldn’t comment on her blog, though, as only Blogger accounts are allowed to comment so I’ll comment here. Great job, Sarah!

Vivi was so excited to see your American Goldfinch. They have really captured her imagination and we don’t even have them this far north!
Thanks for showing us the way to WheelieGirl. I will check her out more often.
