Study Skins

The Palo field station has a small collection of study skins for us to look at and study, so Joe and I did a bit of that today. While they can be useful for taking a look at all sorts of birds for extended amounts of time, they often do not retain many of their original characteristics and are tough to identify.

What I did discover was that a few of these birds have come from a very familiar place, I'm not sure how or why, but there must of been someone connected.

This was attached to a junco:
