We had beautiful weather, a visit from a fun group of teachers, and BIRDS. We also were able to provide a lot of training to a new bander, a new extractor, a new scribe, and a returning volunteer who hasn’t been here since 2006. All in all a great day.
Because of the delay caused by Hurricane/TS Ian, we only got 8 of our nets set up yesterday. Today put up 8 more, and permanently relocated the 17th. Despite all that work and lost effort we caught 87 birds.
|Species||Number of Birds Today|
