Up close with a Black and White

I spent a couple hours one morning last week at the Jekyll Island Banding Station; it’s Georgia’s oldest continually operated station. There’s always a nice variety of birds and the folks who run the station, for a couple weeks each fall, are happy for visitors.

This particular warbler, a Black and White, was quite feisty!

And handsome, of course…

Note the “target” penned on the bander’s finger… he says it gives the birds somewhere to aim their bites!

  1. Years ago, when our son was a young teen, and our daughter just past toddler, we vacationed on Jekyll Island. I loved it. I so wished more east coast shoreline had been so preserved, instead of over-built.

    And as for the little black and white bird being banded–love it. Looks as though you’ve found some new outlets for your birding passion.
