Day 18 of ringing camp – FIRST CAPTURE FOR ANTIKYTHIRA: 2 Common crossbill (Loxia curvirostra)!!!

loxia-curv-gcumbo.JPGlox-curv-gcumbo.JPGloxia-curvirostra-gcumbo.JPGToday, 20 september, in a windy day with very few birds, we have ringed 2 very beautiful birds, 2 Common crossbill (Loxia curvirostra) !!!! This specie is partial migratory. The two exemplaries, trapping together  in the same net, was 2 juvenile male. This two birds have done happy the volunteers, forgotting the few birds ringed today. In the previus days we have already seen and eared this specie, and now first capture for Antikythira!!!
