CMO banding day

Kelly and I came down from Alpine for a morning of hummingbird banding. We started at CMO, where we caught 16 Lucifers and 13 Black-chinneds. The weather was lovely and nothing was screaming to be watered. A real treat!

This one female Black-chinned fascinated me because she had so much of a gorget. That's quite unusual on a female BCHU. So I got Kelly to pose with her while I took her photo. She is a recaptured bird that was first banded 5 years ago. How about that!

Also today, Kelly recaptured his first 6 year old Lucifer Hummingbird ever.
