I am just learning this aspect of birds so please correct me if I am wrong; I learn quicker by being corrected. For those of you that follow molting, I found second molts possibly taking place for two species. According to Sibley, these take place in the spring prior to breeding: Great Blue Herron 5/21/06 Birchim Canyon; Brewer’s Blackbird 5/24/06 South of Green Gates.
