November 15, 2014

Due to the very cold temperatures this morning, we did not open the nets until after 9am. Today was a slow day with only six new birds and fifteen recaptures. We hope that the low numbers are due to the low temperature and winds that we experienced today and that we will continue to have more productive days for the rest of the month.
