3 April 2017 – trapped Common Yellowthroat

I found this rather early fellow right in front of the doorway to the southeast alcove this morning. He’s a gorgeous, ASY male Common Yellowthroat with fat score = 1. He was dazed enough that I caught him but alert and feisty in the hand, and he perched well when I moved him to a safe spot.  In addition to being one of history’s all-time great yellowthroats, he has the distinction of being the 100th “trapped” bird that I’ve been able to move or shoo away from the Noble Research Center.  If even one of them recovered enough to fly on and live out its life then every one of these walks around the NRC has been worth it!

Unfortunately, something went screwy with my camera and this is the only surviving photo:
