Joppa Flats Bird Banding Station
Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Plum Island
A Green-tailed Towhee
was captured and banded on Plum Island today.
Present at the station were Station Manager Janet Standley, banding
Melanie Pearlstein, Alexandra Erickson, and Ganson Purcell, and
Sanctuary Director Bill Gette (along with a very lucky high school
Reading, Mass.) Fortunately, Bill called me and I could get there
before the bird
was released. I managed to get a few photos (below). Perhaps the
of last weekend facilitated the arrival of our visitor. Quite
a bird to get on the last
day of the banding season!
