I see you 👀💜🦉 bird banding is essential to effective bird conservation. The banding of milions of birds annually worldwide contributes greatly to the study of birds' habits that can lead to a greater understanding of their needs. With that information, conservation efforts can be better focused to help birds safe, healthy and thriving.
Thanks again to Garth N. Baker for introducing me to your little fluffy world. You are an amazing hooman. 🤗

What do you do when you catch invasive species?

‪Chinese Hwamei has been increasing in the area in which one of my banding sites is located. Unfortunately, they're an invasive introduced species. But I feel they're beautiful and exiotic.‬ #birdbanding #birdringing

Apart from migrating raptors our count site sees quite a few other families of birds. Mangrove Cuckoos (Coccyzus minor) are an uncommon winter visitor to Belize but have been showing up regularly at our count site. Cuckoos are brood parasites, they lay their eggs in the nests of others birds and the host parents have to raise the young Cuckoos.

throwback to days when I was filling my head with band combinations and group compositions instead of quantum mechanics and the dinner order for the people at table 112....

Pretty little rave bird.
Saw whet owls glow! This is the same wing under black light and under regular light. The newer, recently replaced feathers glow pink with a chemical called poryphrin where the this has worn off the older feathers making them whiter. You can still see the pattern in regular light but it’s less noticeable. This is a typical second year pattern. Since raptors rely on their wings to hunt they are often unable to replace all their feathers at one time like other birds would, and older birds tend to have more asymmetrically replaced feathers!

We've had a few adult Northern Harriers pass through the stations the last couple weeks; check out the adult male and female shown! In addition to size difference, adult male and female harriers also have distinctly different plumages; the adult male is mostly grey (earning him the nickname "grey ghost") with lemon yellow eyes and the female is brown with heavy streaking; her eyes run more gold-yellow, but can vary with individual and age. In comparison the hatch years of both sexes display brown plumage overall and a heavy buff wash on the chest and less distinct streaking, and the male and female hatch years can be sexed by size and eye color. Wishing them the best as they continue their journeys! #northernharrier #circushudsonius #hawk #nature #birdbanding #birdringing #anillamiento #wildliferesearch #birds #conservationresearch

Did we capture his good side? Portrait of an Eastern Screech-owl we netted on 11/19/18. It was already banded, we first caught it in November 2015.

Today was a pretty amazing day at the Belize Bird Conservancy hawk watch site. The sky was literally filled with raptors, we had 921 individual Hook-billed Kites and a total of 15 species of raptors and many other migrant and local passerines. After 2 days of bad weather it was very rewarding to have a good day of data collection. The lighting wasn't that good but I got some decent photos.

The many faces of a Northern saw-whet owl. Really beautiful birds with expressive little faces.
We were lucky to have a recently banded owl sit right on a close by branch and watch us for a few minutes as we watched it, before flying back off into the night like a giant moth, likely to continue its journey further south. Really cool moment and I was happy to snap a few quick shots.

I was fortunate to experience Northern Saw-whet Owl banding last night. It was amazing seeing these owls up close! #northernsawwhetowl #owls #owlbanding #birdbanding #fallmigration #fieldwork #research #maryland #chesterriverfieldresearch #fbbo

There are 8 species of #owls that could potentially be found in #Maryland, some of which are here year-round, and others that are #migratory and only here for part of the year. Within the past few weeks, Maryland's smallest #owl, the Northern saw-whet owl, has been migrating down from the upper reaches of North America, and researchers everywhere have been catching and banding these diminutive little #raptors in an effort to learn more about their migratory patterns and population health, through a program called Project Owlnet.
A few of us at #SWS were fortunate enough to assist with this program at banding locations throughout the state, from the mountains of Appalachia to the Eastern Shore. The saw-whet owl is difficult to observe due to it small size and secretive nature, so we were grateful for the opportunity to not only get a close look at the species, but to also learn new research techniques and gather data that will go towards a better understanding of their habits.

This adult male Eastern Bluebird was a bright spot on a cloudy day. It was originally banded back in November 2017 as a hatch year and not captured again until today.

Would you believe these two owls are the same species? The Eastern Screech Owl comes in two different color morphs: grey on the left, and red on the right.
