Exciting Banding News!

I mentioned previously that last weekend in Wisconsin we captured an American Goldfinch with a band that was not ours. I reported the band to the Bird Banding Lab and found out that this particular bird was originally banded on 2-9-04 somewhere in Illinois! This is pretty exciting as this is only the second foreign retrap we've ever had. I should be getting a certificate from the BBL in a couple of weeks that will tell me more about this individual.

I can't wait to get the details.
