No banding

June 03, 2019 - Etobicoke - William Osler

Marion Nash Reports:

Unfortunately we were not able to safely extract the chicks from the ledge for banding today. Mom had brought in food and coaxed the chicks out of the nest and down the ledge to be fed. They were just too far down the ledge for us to reach and the slanted ledge is not safe for us to climb out onto to grab them.

We will have to band chicks if and when they come to ground at fledge time.
