Fall Banding Comments Off on BLACKPOLLS GALORE!
Other visitors included Dr. Drew Lanham, ornithologist and author from Clemson University, and RBA president, Laura Kammermeier.
Researcher Elliot Johnston tested 54 birds in the MARS lab, 44 of which were Blackpolls.
In the evening, we set up for owls, but had no luck in catching any. But a large crowd enjoyed cake and ice-cream to honor Jenna Holschuh, who received her Master Banding Permit earlier this month, and Ryan Kayhart, who is celebrating his tenth year of serving first as intern, and then Field Assistant, and then Research Assistant.
