These images were taken on Mount Mansfield, Vermont on September 13 and 14th for a project for the PBS NewsHour. The project will not be published for a while, so I wanted to post my edit from that trip here. I went to Vermont to photograph scientists who study migratory birds. These magnificent birds fly from Canada to Puerto Rico without stopping. The scientists set up nets; capture, examine and band the birds; and then write down all of the details about each one. Here are some of my favorite images from that experience.
A warbler is caught in the net set by the scientists. It was quickly released from the net, examined and banded.
