Laguna Blanca - New bird for the reserve hits the nets!

Yesterdays Flycatcher has been confirmed as a Highland Elaenia from morphametrics which is a new bird for the reserve and a life bird for me. Thanks Paul!

Today's bird of the day in the nets was a Gilded Sapphire and what a delicate bird this was to handle but it was very easy to get out of the net. This was my first hummingbird in the hand and I did not need to use the vile of sugar water either. This bird was a very energetic character that declined this offer before release!
