Was an absolute pleasure attending the opening of Birdlife South Africa's new head offices, Isdell House. It's such a pleasure seeing the organization reach new heights due to the valued contribution of driven conservationists as staff! #LeadSA #AvianConservation #FastAndFeatherless

A Broad-winged hawk (Buteo platypterus) receives a weekly condition check by clinic volunteer staff. During this intermediate phase of treatment birds begin building up their flight stamina in small outdoor aviaries while having their vitals monitored by staff. #avianmedicine #avianconservation #broadwingedhawk

This Golden Eagle chick we banded in western Nunavut back in July is hopefully now arriving on its first wintering grounds somewhere in Montana, Utah or perhaps Nevada. Although first year mortality is quite high, I'd like to think it's sunbathing somewhere on a rocky perch overlooking a herd of pronghorn and getting fat in preparation for the winter off jack rabbits and ground squirrels.

A confluence of ecological issues. This fledgling Scaly-breasted Munia (aka Spice Finch) was a victim of the #2 biggest unnatural COD in birds - window strikes. This species is native to Asia and as evidenced by this fledgling, is breeding in Orange County, CA. Often kept as a pet (I had a couple myself in high school), escapees or releases have established large populations in places like California and Hawaii, and Australia. California's Bird Records Committee recently added the Scaly-breasted Munia, which makes it a "countable" species for birders. As an invasive/introduced species, their presence is disadvantageous for fellow granivorous birds through direct competition for food sources, nesting sites, and perhaps transmission of avian diseases. #invasivespecies #windowstrike #avianconservation #birdsmatter

Bald Eagle release today at the Center for Birds of Prey. Great job Debbie Mauney, medical staff and volunteers for caring for this stunning creature! She's headed back home to GA. #eaglerelease #avianconservation #centerforbirdsofprey

Scrolling through Insta I saw two birder friends share pictures of yellow-rumped warblers, so I thought I'd continue the trend. We called this a male "after second year" based on the dark black centers and bluish-gray color of the back feathers. This means the bird was not born spring of 2016, but a previous spring. Knowing age and sex ratios of birds in an area is vital for ornithological #conservation.

Male Bar-pouched Wreathed Hornbill ( Rhyticeros undulatus) which was hunted down and sold in local retail market for 1500 rupees in a small town in North East India today morning. Sad to see many kills like this on a daily basis for trophy or for exotic wild meat

Join me this weekend at the Wings and Wildlife Art Show at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh! I will be one of 40 artists exhibiting and selling artwork throughout the building. It is free with admission. There will be a gala Friday night if you'd like to help raise even more money for the birds! All ticket sales support the aviary's avian medicine, education, and conservation programs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Connecticut Warbler. It seems to be the coveted and mysterious warbler to birders out here. It almost started to feel like an urban myth to me~. This bird is described as being uncommon and a skulker. It's been where I've been and I have always managed to miss it. I actually missed it this morning, but she came back later in the day so that I could redeem myself. 😊 I threw in the winter wren for good measure. Out of the 230 birds captured today (apparently an ok day!) these two were my highlights 🐦🍁

Can you spot the molt limit? To be fair the lighting in this picture isn't great, and what in the world is a molt limit even right? Bird banders use two main techniques to age a bird. One technique is called skulling where we spread the feathers on the back of a bird's head to see if the second layer of bone has grown in under the first layer. If it hasn't that bird was born this season! We also use molt limits to age. A molt limit is when 2 generations of feathers are found next to each other, either within or between feather tracts. I'll give you a hint, this one is found in the greater coverts which makes it a hatch year bird aka a bird born this season!

Hummingbird research continues at Capulin Volcano National Monument. In this image pollen is being collected from a hummingbirds bill.
The Western Hummingbird Partnership is hoping to improve the understanding between hummingbirds and the plants they feed from. Photo taken by EFTA intern at CAVO, Kelsey Whitaker. To learn more about Kelsey's experiences visit http://www.latinoheritageintern.com/2017/06/how-to-band-a-hummingbird/

It's that time of the year again. Banding season! Take a look at this handsome male MacGillivray's Warbler 😍 He looks ready for the ladies.

Warbler Wednesday! Here's a vibrant male Tennessee warbler I caught 3 years ago (on this day!) as part of my master's research, where I investigated the relationship of human disturbances to birds' ability to acquire fat during migration.

With a total of 13 interns taking part in the Celebra Las Aves program, training in San Diego was a success! Interns learned how to identify shorebirds, lead environmental education programs, outreach to the public and much more. Interns have started at their sites already and will be stationed there until August to September. Many thanks to all who participated and made this training a great one once again!! #EFTA_birdday #AGO2017 #avianconservation #CelebraLasAves #SanDiego #training #internships

Federally listed as threatened under the endangered species act, the Western Snowy Plover faces ongoing decline in breeding sites and populations. Human activities, such as walking, jogging, running pets, horseback riding, and vehicle use, are key factors in the ongoing decline. We can all lend a hand in protecting these cuties!

Between habitat destruction, loss of protected areas for wildlife, and increases in invasive species, native wildlife face severe threats from humans. In fact, outdoor cats kill 3.6 MILLION birds every DAY in the U.S. alone. "While habitat loss and climate change pose long-term dangers to birds in this country, recent research shows that outdoor cats currently kill more of them than any other threat caused by humans." (www.theatlantic.com)
.
There are ways to help. First, keep your kitty indoors. If they must go out, definely spay and neuter. Please also consider a Birdsbesafe collar, that uses bright colors to may cat's presence known to birds [www.birdsbesafe.com]. You can make a difference, no matter how small it may seem. .

Guess what is just around the EFTA corner. Give up? Shorebird training in San Diego! We have 12 interns coming from all over the US to participate in this weeklong training so they can prepare for their 5-6 month long internships as part of the Celebra Las Aves: Latinos in Avian Conservation Internship Program. We're excited for next week.

Thrilled to announce that I'll be volunteering with Aula Global Biological Reserve researching Bare-necked Umbrellabirds during my trip to Costa Rica! Very little is known about their nesting and reproductive ecology, and it is a privilege to get to work with the team doing some ground-breaking research on this species

It's amazing when the first time you ever see a species is also the first time you get to band it! Here I got my first ever look at a grasshopper sparrow, and I am checking out the wing to determine its age. So incredibly thankful for this opportunity, and excited to bring my knowledge back to the @tnrivergorge!

Was looking forward to returning to the PNW to band birds with a great crew and good friends. But... I hope Colorado treats me as well #wishmeluck !

Here are some of my favorite captures from last year.
Golden-crowned kinglet, Pacific Wren, Golden-crowned Sparrow, & Varied thrush.
