Cynthia and Polly led a birding class at Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary, and did a fine and entertaining job, at that.
For the record - that's Cynthia Routledge holding the Downy Woodpecker. She's making observations and just about to put a band on the little fellow's leg before releasing him back into the wild. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! She apprenticed for five years before going out on her own as a bird bander.
Really. Don't try it. Just enjoy the birds with your eyes and ears. Keep your hands to yourself.
