IBO Bird Banding at Lucky Peak

Eric writes: Over the last couple of weeks I have been busy banding birds and point counting at Lucky Peak.  Our songbird season ends in a week and I'll be heading back to Indiana soon after.  Here are a few more birds that we have been banding at Lucky Peak in Idaho!

One of our record number of Flammulated Owls caught
this year.  We only need a few more to hit 100!

feathers they are named for.
We've been catching many more Saw-whet Owls lately,
this is one of many.
Kestrels may be small but they have a lot of fight.
This is a male we recently caught.

A female Golden-crowned Kinglet.  The smallest
songbird we catch.
