Caption: One researcher records data while another holds a tagged hooded warbler (Wilsonia citrina) in East Ship island, Mississippi. Bird banding operations, also known as ''ringing schemes,'' allow scientists to study many aspects of the birds' lives in the wild (including migration, longevity, mortality, population and feeding behavior) by re-finding ringed birds at different times and locations. This bird was captured during the spring migrating season.
