Sunday Snapshot: Newly banded

Newly-banded and released Pileated Woodpecker

A Pileated Woodpecker captured and banded at our Blue Lakes MAPS station this season – only the second we’ve caught in three seasons of MAPS work. It’s such a privilege to see these guys in the hand. This one was an after-third-year – that is, at least four (or more) years old. Close-up of the bird here.
