E3 Makes Debut Appearance at Cornell Lab Migration Celebration 2014

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology 2014 Migration Celebration saw E3's debut appearance as an education bird and an ambassador for Red-tailed Hawks. He did an amazing job, with help from his awesome student handler. He remained calm and still while fans around him took photographs and filmed him. Birders on the Ground (BOG) Karel and BOGette live streamed throughout the day, as well as BOG Ferris. The Cornell Lab continue to be extremely grateful to all those involved in E3's rescue, care and support.

Dark-eyed Juncos

Dark-eyed Juncos are birds of the ground. They hop around the bases of trees and shrubs in forests or venture out onto lawns looking for fallen seeds. You’ll often hear their high chip notes, given almost absent-mindedly while foraging, or intensifying as they take short, low flights through cover. During flock feeding in non-breeding seasons, tail-flicking (exposing outer white feathers) and calling are very frequent; bill-jabbing is rare. In most common aggressive displays the dominant bird will sleek head and neck plumage and extend the neck horizontally. A supplanting attack usually consists of dominant’s hopping forward, subordinate’s retreating. If the individual does not retreat, contestants face off a few centimeters apart.
