This could very well be the final woodpecker video of the season! This pileated was some god-tier bycatch, but now that I’m hovering at the sample goal, banding efforts are winding down. Until next year!
Young Liam <3 wishing him all the luck in the world with the debut of his upcoming solo album and tour. Still holding out for him to patch things up with Noel, though. “Just cos you’ve kissed the sky, give it a fucking lovebite.”
My two bycatches today were both in-the-hand lifers for me: pine warbler and brown-headed nuthatch!
Sadly, neither of these guys could be banded since they’re not on my permit or protocols yet. Brown-headed nuthatch is pending though– they’re cooperative breeders and a great model species for studies in social networking!
🐦🐦🐦🐦 oh MY GOD. I LOVE HYACINTHS. tbh I’m not a huge fan of macaws (I was attacked by several working at the avian clinic LOOOL) BUT I found the hyacinths there were always so gentle and cuddly. I LOVE INDIGO. I WANT ROSE TO MARRY HIM
