Throwback Thursday: On This Day in the Palomarin Journal, 01The Palomarin Journal goes hand-in-hand with our long-term avian and ecosystem studies at the field station.  Each day since 1966 interns, volunteers and staff have sat down at the end of the day and took stock of the weather, people, birds and any other noteworthy items encountered during that day.  The Journal tracks the rich history of avian science, conservation training, and field biology culture at the field station.  On Throwback Thursdays we share snapshots of Palomarin history from this journal with you and invite you to reflect on times past and change over time with us.

On this day in 1993:

“Despite constant cloud-cover it was a niiiiice day.  Warm and clear visibility all day.”  The temperature ranged from a low of 6 to a high of 13 C. There were eight species captured in the nets, and interns SO (Susan Oppenheimer) and TG (Tom Gardali,) together banded their first hummingbird, a male Anna’s Hummingbird.  Tom is now our Pacific Coast and Central Valley Director!
