Friday October 18, 2013.  22 new of 7 species.

Between pine needles and leaves we found 22 new birds to band.

We had some special visitors, Jenna’s parents.

We also spent some time practicing Ruth’s way of knotting bird bags and trying to figure what hand we use

to extract birds from bags and nets. We had time to do this because the seven species of birds we did get

we were all familiar with, Golden-Crowned Kinglet coming in first with 10.

The picture of the day!!!
