Subject: Hilton Pond 12/01/16 (2016 Bird Banding Summary; Hummingbirds)
Bird banding efforts in 2016 at Hilton Pond Center wasn’t nearly as productive as last year—except that I caught (and re-caught) what was for this location an amazingly highly number of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. To see images of some of the birds banded and to read about 2016 results, please visit my current “This Week at Hilton Pond” photo essay at < >

While there please scroll down for a list of birds banded specifically during the final half of December, and to view acknowledgements for some of our end-of-year supporters.

Happy (New Year) Nature Watching!
