If you are new to banding, read the About Bird Banding page. We have been banding Painted Buntings for five winter seasons (2013-2018) and banded at Possum Long in Stuart, FL since 2012. But life has changed for us. As of July, 2018 we are now based in Richland, WA and new projects are on the way. We are leaving old posts and pages in place as that information is still relevant and exciting. Let's see what we learn in this new chapter of banding.
We banded one Yellow-rumped Warbler today. Quiet, too quiet. So, we will be taking a break for a while and will see you all as soon as we see birds moving after the new year. Watch this blog and even subscribe so you get notice when we resume.
Keep in mind that we will be actively banding Painted Buntings during this break. We have had lots of news on returns and even a bird sighted away from where it was banded in a different part of FL.
