Hummingbird banding day

This is the middle of hummingbird fall migration so the banding schedule is weekly during this time. Today we got the usual numbers and diversity we've been getting for the past several weeks plus an interesting hybrid at CMO. Kelly thinks, based on measurements and appearance, that it's a Calliope/Broad-tailed hybrid.

At our next banding location, things were also normal for this time of year. As we were getting ready to leave, Kelly spied a near-invisible baby horned lizard. Here is Kelly photographing it with his cell phone.

And here are my zoomed in Canon shots of it.

So adorable!
