Banders’ Corner

Published in 1976

Banding this “,inter provided its usual share of interesting records. I banded my first Evening Grosbeaks this year at the home of Bob and Elberta Reid. These birds are al”,ays a pleasure to be around and help to brighten any winter’s day. While at the Reid’s, I also captured a Carolina Chickadee which was already wearing a band. I reported the band number and discovered that this bird had been banded seven years earlier by my friend and a former president of AOS, Michael Lee Bierly.
