These are the pictures from the banding of the Blue Lake chick last Sunday AM. This youngster’s father has a hook in his bill, and attempts to capture and treat it have so far all been unsuccessful. For future reference, this chick wears a silver USFWS band on its left leg, and a 003 red band on the right. Pictured from left to right are: Joe, Brad, and Peg.
