    I noticed this robin in our back yard about a week ago. He was on the fence across the alley last Sunday and I captured this pic of him. When I loaded it up on my computer, I noticed he was sporting a leg band. My neighbor is a biology professor at our local college and I guess they have a banding program in the fall. My neighbor has seen this robin since the picture on his feeder so he is still in the neighborhood.

    I guess my camera rig now needs to include a pellet gun!! :fp :yes

    You'd need a really little lanyard to put the band on though... :l

    I always look at birds legs and I never saw a band besides on waterfowl. Great shot!
