Forest Fancies

“I realize there’s something incredibly honest about trees in winter, how they’re experts at letting things go.”

I'm Jenna. grad student. new york state. ecologist. naturalist. environmentalist. dog-lover. birder. nerd. I love procrastinating, science, music, nature, photography, interesting people, books, learning, astronomy, hiking, chocolate, peanut butter, tea, and coffee. I also love meeting new people, so say hello!

This is an immature female Cooper’s Hawk (COHA) I saw get banded this past fall.  She was an amazingly alert bird!  Raptors are cool birds, I hope to learn how to band them this spring.  I took this photo with my friend’s SLR, bander Dan is holding the bird.  (:

    This is incredible. I’m so, so jealous that you got to witness the banding of a raptor! I’ve helped weigh birds and bag...
