Friday June 27,2014  19 19 new birds and 13 retraps.

Once again it was a very small crew, with  Henry, me and Mr. Olsen.

After we got the station ready, Henry and I were headed out to start to open

nets when Mr. Olsen drove in.  Along with him were Ian and Ryley.

All nets were open at sunrise. The morning started foggy in the early part of the day. By 7am

the fog was gone. Mr. Olsen and I banded, and checked nets 1-5, while Henry picked the back nets.

About mid mourning we watched a bald eagle

try to take a fish out of an Osprey’s talons.  But it looked like the eagle didn’t have any luck.

Our next banding day will be Sunday July 6.
