    If you have an interest in birds, but have never been to a banding you are missing out. It is a wonderful experience & makes for some excellent photography. You really get to learn about the birds in your area & see their incredible details

    Neat shots, especially the female Cardinal. I've always wanted to see a bird banding but around here they're really really early in the morning, unfortunately for me (night person).

    I spend a lot of time at a banding station near me. Wonderful staff who are more than happy to answer questions when they aren't busy. I've learned so much from them.

    Also my very firs time seeing a long earned owl.
