Peg, Kiah and I arrived on Appledore yesterday, August 14 in time for dinner. Thanks to extra helping hands from Eleanor and Solomon Bowker, and Marie Nickerson we got the nets set up after supper and most of the station ready to go. It was hot with only a slight breeze. The ankle-biters were having a field day with our legs!
A juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Heron in the swimming pool was fun to watch.
This morning we finished the last open up preparation and opened the nets before breakfast.
The fall 2016 banding season has begun. Yeah!
Becky, Peg and Kiah.
