Close banding

Took out 4 chicks for close banding. This time I used the correct size for Shamas. Correct meaning that it won't be too large as to get a toe entangled in the ring in the future. Donated by a good friend, Jeffrey Low, so they are banded as JL86, JL87, JL88, JL89.
Removed the parent birds as well and that will be all from this pair for the year.

Now the focus shifts to another pair I am breeding from.... also 4 chicks in the nest. The pied pair, a very interesting pair for me to observe....
