Banding birds at Sandy Hook

Today on our bird walk at Sandy Hook led by Scott Barnes, we stopped by the banding station to see what birds they had captured in the mist nets. We saw them band, measure, and weigh the following birds: adult male, young male, and female Common Yellowthroats, a House Wren, and a Gray Catbird. Here is one photo of each bird, but you can click on any photo that will bring you to the entire album:
