Banded Bird #76949 – Female
This banded female is new to our study and this is the first time we have seen her in the colony since we banded her 4 years ago. She is very young and her nest is on the edge of a breeding group. This makes us worried that she may have trouble raising her chicks. We do not know how old her mate is, but perhaps he will keep them safe. This family has been named the Phoenix nest by the students in Billie Morris’ class at Cumberland Academy, Fayetteville, NC.
