"Pink 59" Is Christened

Biologist Joseph Brandt installs the identifying patagial tag on the juvenile bird's right wing. It is held in place by a small nut and bolt. He followed this procedure by gluing a transmitter to one of its tail feathers before posing with the group with the bird, then releasing it back into the flight pen preparatory to future wild-release. Bitter Creek NWR, Kern County, CA.
