We only try to catch juncos, but when you have nets up in good habitat, some accidental capture of other species seems to be inevitable. These other species—our “bycatch”—are quickly extracted from the nets and released, although not without a few photos first.
Male Golden-crowned Kinglet
Female American Robin
Male Red-breasted Nuthatch
Unknown (anyone?) flycatcher
We caught two other birds too, but they were so cool that I’m giving them their own separate post. Be excited.
(If you like bycatch posts, you can find last year’s in the “bycatch” category. We had some great birds last year too!)
