In 2013 we banded a total of 270 birds that represented 39 species. In our short beginning in 2012 we only had 13 birds but 2 of those birds were species we did not catch this year.
We held 50 sessions that had newly banded birds.
Today was not a day when we added new species to the property or even any newly banded birds but it was one of my favorite sessions so far. We had an visit with Cub Scout Pack 814 and two additional Boy Scouts from Troop 811 in which we explored science in action. These young men were very interested and we talked a lot about banding. They asked very good questions too.
