Bird Banding at the Indiana Dunes.
Blue-crowned nuthatch getting his tiny metal band with a nine-digit identification number.
The band is on and all that needs to be done is to weigh this little guy
All done and ready to take off!

Reminds me of bird banding on Midway Atoll. Except that the albatross being banded are BIG birds, and they can do quite a bit of damage if you don’t hold them quite right. What a cute little guy this nuthatch is. Was he hard to catch and hold?
