One of the great rewards of being a bird bander is the opportunity to be out of doors in wild and sometimes lonely places for an entire day.

These conditions lend to experiences that do not always relate to birds, but which are interesting and enjoyable encounters with other forms of wildlife. Following are a few experiences I have had while banding.
