Ah... Thanks for answering my question, bcbird, RCF & TPC. I did wonder later if it might have been a blood sample that was being taken. Would they have taken a blood sample from all of the chicks? ???

Yes, they take blood from every chick.  ;)

Yes, the folks in Nebraska take the blood samples for genetic testing - part of a long term study.

They gave one of the chicks an injection after they were finished banding. What was the injection for? I know that one of the chicks died in the nestbox not long ago. Does anyone know what he/she died of? ???

They were taking blood. They do this at most the bandings in the US for genetic reasons I think.   :-\    The parents disposed of the deceased chick,  so who knows what happened to it.  ???

Watching that bit of the video again, I wondered if it was a blood sample being drawn, rather than an injection.  The syringe looked closed and empty to me.

So sad one of the chicks died.  At least there are still 3 left and hopefully it is not contagious.
It seems like this year there are so many chicks that don't make it or the eggs do not hatch.
