    Banding birds disturbs them

    Banding should only be done with endangered species like condors in Ca.

    Why would you not place a "towel" over the birds head while banding?

    Good thing, many osprey chicks are not branded. This osprey couple would be smart to find another nesting place next year………

    It's amazing that the parents don't attack you. I've seen red winged blackbirds attack them and they dont defend themselves. I watch them every day & am so glad that a camera was put up so we can see them.

    How beautiful! I didn't know they played "dead"!

    Also, it's good to see real nest stuff in the nest, not human trash.
