New Young Birds from Alaska

Just got four new young birds - very pretty young birds from a breeder in Alaska!  They got here pretty quick - two days - and looked good and healthy.  They settled in with the rest of my young bird team very nicely.  They are two light and two dark grizzles.  I especially like the darker grizzles as they have quite a bit of red.  I would call them almond or bronze.  Steve calls them tortoise.  They are actually redder than the picture shows.  I have 22 young birds banded with more on the way.  I am hoping for about 36 on the 2011 young bird team.
