The November 25th show featured a conversation with Gwen Baluss. This was the 7th year Gwen has come to Sitka to band birds as part of the Sitka Winter Birds banding study. We spoke about highlights from this year’s banding efforts, as well as some of the things we’ve learned from this effort.
If you are in Sitka or elsewhere in Southeast Alaska and observe color banded Dark-eyed Juncos, Song Sparrows, or Chestnut-backed Chickadees, we would love to hear about it.
You can learn more about the project here.
If you have questions or observations you want to share, please feel free to leave a comment here or on the page I’ve set up for that purpose.
