Doh! All the good banding happens when I'm not around!

Okay, I really need to get to bed and get my stuff together for tomorrow, but Larry Sirvio sent me some photos of some pretty incredible birds that they got at Carpenter today. One I'm going to save, I might use it as a contest but this is just a wow:

How the heck do you get a ruby-throated hummingbird out of a net? Remember, banding every Friday morning at Carpenter--free and open to the public. Now that migration is under way, it could get very intersting. I won't be there next Friday again because of Game Fair again so chances are good some more cool stuff will come in.
