Banded Yard Birds

Connor recently figured out where the Song Sparrows were nesting (the male in the pair was banded last fall in my yard), and I got a poor picture of one of them headed into the brush pile where the nest is.

While watching the yard, I was surprised to see a banded Dark-eyed Junco visit. By the time I got my camera ready, it had gone to the feeder where I could not see its legs. I was able to grab a couple of shots as it took off to verify the band colors. It was one of the ones banded in the yard last November, and one of only a handful of summer reports of juncos banded for this project.
