Ringing snowbuntings

Above I take the selfie shown to the left
Today we are ringing 17 snowbunting chicks with metal and colour rings to study toundra survival. Soon they will leave the nestbox and follow their parents begging loudly. In this period many will be taken by the Arctic fox.
Margje has worked several seasons with great tits in the Netherlands. She likes small birds.
For me they are too small, difficult to see.
Wildlifecameras near the nest register daily rhytms of activity. The birds sleep between 0:00 and 02:00 AM, despite the full daylight.
