Everyone gets to hold a bird. It takes most birds a few seconds to realize they are free to go after they've been measured, weighed and banded. This is a female black-chinned hummingbird. Mostly, black-chins were caught Saturday....but there was also a calliope. They're tiny - the smallest birds in the U.S. and Canada. I posted all the photos from the adventure on the "extras" page - get there, by clicking here.
