A Bird in the Hand

I got to hang with the Bird Banders a couple weeks ago. Walt Sakai and his crew of dedicated volunteers have been banding birds in Lower Zuma Canyon for years now. Banding the birds gives us inofmration on population dynamics, dispersment, sex, and migration.

Pictured above are:
