Project Overview

I'm assuming it was light blue since it appeared almost lavender. the "white" band almost looked aluminum, but since it was on the left leg I will assume it was white. The group didn't stay long but will check for them more today. On a pretty regular basis we have lots of juncos daily as well as siskins, a few varied thrush, song sparrows, and a nuthatch that has been here since late November or so.
