Thank you!

Maria dB I agree with your concern and understand that it is a practice that should not be encouraged. In the case of this bird, I wanted to post it because I located just a spot in another location . When this is so, I will put a note saying it was a capture for scientific purposes :)

Thank you for explaining, Tamara! That is good information for our young Project Noah users - we don't want to encourage them to catch birds for photos - and it is interesting information, too.

Maria dB, this bird was caught in a mist net over a survey of wildlife. We take your biometric data, to evaluate their health and then the liberated.
