This is an abnormal bird that we banded a few years ago and we needed to pull the field guide out for its proper identification. When we took it out of the mist-net we said “hmm . . . . now isn’t this different”! We took some measurements, scratched our heads and lucky had some other birds to compare it to before saying it was a “. . . . . .”!

If you found this bird out in the field . . . . what species would you think it could be?? Use your field guide and be sure to look for ALL available field marks. I figured everyone was ready for a harder birdQUIZ (but then again the last one seemed to bring in a great discussion and I thought it was easy)!
