A Purple Finch near our home in Southeast Missouri. I have taken thousands of images of wild birds but this is the first banded bird I have taken a photo of. I tried to enlarge it enough to try to read the band but no luck.

Thank you John
just beautiful. I wonder why and who banded it. Too bad you couldn’t read the numbers. Maybe it was hurt at one time. I guess I could come up with all kinds of maybes’. lol Great capture.
They band them to see where all they travel, how long they live, and some other reasons. Thank you
wonderful capture .. many congrats on the feature
