The session was cut short but the return of rain, but we caught two new species for the summer.
Ryan, a friend of mine, came along and the vireo sat in his hand for awhile before making her departure.
Even in the soaked forest there are cool finds to be made.
|Baby wood frog|
|Nursery web spider|
|Some type of fungus?|
Ryan experiencing birds up close and banding for the first time sparked discussion of a common theme I've seen. Before working with Bishop I rarely spared a second look at birds.
After banding, Ryan said he'd be paying attention to birds all the time. Krista and I shared experiences of how our eyes also had been opened to how amazing and diverse these everyday creatures are.
