Female Pied Flycatcher with jewellery.....

I can understand why birds are ringed/tagged for the purpose of study and research of their habitats/movements/num​bers, migratory patterns.......the lists goes on, this is all good news for the purposes and importance of conservation.

But ......Why so many ????

I was talking to a forest warden where I was told that in his patch, over 100 bird boxes were put up and all had nesting birds and all the parents were ringed and the boxes regularily monitored and checked. The young at the right time would also be ringed. This to me just seems over the top and surely this causes some stress to the birds. Why not have a random selection of the boxes done? Say 25%. This is also what I am being told is happening in other locations?

I recently saw a Dipper that had 3 rings, all different colours on both legs. Why 3, Surely this not necessary.

Mike that Teal is up there with the prettiest bird photos I've seen.
So very nice colourful, detailed image

Quails are beautiful colourful birds.
Love the gait and details in the plumage.

Richard, your wonderful comments are way too kind, but I truly thank you. They certainly are very encouraging.

That's a beauty Paul. The blossoms add such a nice touch to the overall composition.

Very nice, Bill. Judging from this shot, I'd say you're liking the a9 quite a bit. :-)

Very nice shot, Paul. Great composition, and the band makes it all the more interesting. I agree with you about the banding of all the birds. A random selection of 25% would seem to work just fine to me also.

Robin was chomping down on these caterpillars. The magnolia leaf matched color of breast on robin.

Rosy-Faced Lovebird couple chewing on the bark of this old cholla tree and then passing the chunks of wood between them. Not sure if this was some kind of courtship ritual or if they get some nutrition from the bark.
