I also hate bands on birds... like why... I think we should know everything we need to know by now..

I think you might be surprised how much we still don't know about birds. FOr example, when birds are trapped, their bands (if they have them) can tell us lots about where birds migrate to, or where they have come from and how these patterns might change with the changing climate. In some cases here this migration knowledge has highlighted that dwindling numbers of some species are actually due to conditions in other countries - which at least gives us a chance to try to do something to help. Without banding we wouldn't know this.

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

I understood your thinking Jack... But I don't think we as a collective group help any wild animals long term. If we could fix the human condition. I don't hold any hope that we can help the poor animals that have every conceivable transmitter or band neck bands wing bands ... I mean when does it end.. when every animal on the planet is tagged.

I'm gona tell ya... today I tried my darnedest to help a little guy that I only met today.. thats where we can help.. I'm not sure I got the Ivermec into him.. but I tried

I know it's nothing like what you guys endure up north, but this morning my bird bath/fountain was frozen solid.It was clear & sunny out, but because the sun is so low in the sky, it doesn't really clear my house so the yard is pretty well shaded.

I was surprised how many birds were in & out all morning.

My backyard.
