How do I report a banded Shorebird sighting?
While on vacation at Dauphin Island, I photographed a lot of birds. I didn’t even realize this guy was banded until I looked closer at the photo. He has a bright orange band on his top, right leg and a light blue band on his bottom, left leg. I can’t remember how many other birds were around or what the weather was like. How do I report this sighting? Sorry for the bad photo quality, I had to take a picture of the picture from my camera.
Photo was taken July 25, 2022.

Brown-headed Nuthatch Feeding Young
The Brown-headed Nuthatch pair (was a cooperative breeding situation with former juvenile from prior brood, but that one has moved on) has been tending to their hatched young. Managed to get great videos at multiple angles showcasing feeding, fecal sac removal, and young peeking out. Lots of vocalizations by parents and young. They’ve grown so big!

Downy Woodpecker feeding baby
I found Papa Woodpecker feeding baby woodpecker suet. At first i thought he was feeding his mate, (romantic) but it turns out it was actually his baby! So cute, brought tears to my eyes!

House Finch Eggs!!!
On my porch, there is this little white hanging bench swing that is supposed to be a bird feeder, but I never filled it up. And now, there is a beautiful pair of House Finches nesting in it!
The eggs are SO cute!
