Hey Kathi-
Thanks for the great photos from Springville Marsh! We checked out the action at Oak Openings, with GREAT looks at Lark Sparrows and many rare plants.

Thanks for the great Shade-grown Coffee House, it was great fun. Who knew OOS had so many poets? Conservation and libations- my idea of a perfect evening!

Best, Cheryl

I'm my gosh! These birds are magnificent! And those who held them made sure you got some awesome poses! That little yellowthroat is so cute I wish I could keep him in my house ;-) And the flicker - oh my!! And the Magnolia ...and the Canada...I'm jealous...so jealous!!! What a great banding party you had!

Wow! What alot of different birds they banded. I especially loved the B. Thrasher and the Flicker, although those warblers up close are so cute and colorful but the Oriole is the most colorful of all!! Great photos!

I love how you went from tiny birds to the comparatively huge thrush and flicker. Nice!
