We will have a great team working at KIBS this year! Most of the banding assistants will arrive during the week of August 22-29. I will update the "Staff" page in the coming weeks with everybody's profile. I am happy to have Mattie VandenBoom returning for her 3rd fall season! I'd like to welcome Chris Snook (who will be heading up the site at Little Bear Island), Casey Weissburg, Sean McElaney, Michael Gamble, and Nancy Raginski to Kiawah Island! A big thanks to Ryan Donnelly for helping me the last couple weeks clear net lanes and put up the mist nets. Ryan will hopefully be volunteering with us regularly during the banding season as well.
Any guesses what the first bird of the season will be?
