Project Overview

An unbanded Song Sparrow also came into the yard and was interacting (chasing) with the banded song sparrow. Unbanded song sparrow appeared to be lighter in color (maybe a locally nesting bird, with banded bird a wintering bird?) Connor reported that there had been a second banded song sparrow earlier (though he couldn't see the color bands).
