Banding the Golden-cheeked Warbler

Jun 21, 2013 - 11:56 am

We found it interesting that the City of Austin plays such a vital role in learning more about how the rare Golden-cheeked warbler is doing, how many there are, and how we can better manage the Balcones Canyonlands Preserves to help them thrive.  We waited a while to find and catch a warbler.  Just before he was banded, the little guy escaped and we had to wait for another bird to get trapped.  Although the shoot took a long time, we were finally able to get the shot of a warbler getting caught in a net and banded.
