The final weeks of 2017 brought busy days and thrilling captures for the winter banding interns at the Palomarin Field Station, including the latest capture of a Swainson’s Thrush in our 51 years of banding!
October was a busy month with capstone projects, North American Banding Council certifications, and lots of banding. Read on to learn about the common, and not-so-common captures and activities last month.
In August we transitioned from the breeding season to fall migration, said goodbye to outgoing interns, and welcomed the new crew. We also enjoyed captures of some of the earlier fall migrants, among other exciting captures.
