July 5th – Ruthven Update

Christine giving a demo.

We had a great group from Haldimand County camps today (43 instead of
the predicted 60-80 – which worked out fine for us!). The kids had
lots of fun and despite the horrible cold I have – I had a great time
too!!! 🙂

Christine, Chris, Nancy, Bronwyn, Liz, Peter were all a great help and
kept the birds cycling through the banding lab at a great pace. You
missed Nancy’s cheesecake…I think Bronwyn and Liz brought some goodies

Chris, who is not intimidated by pain, extracts a tough one.

Nancy keeps the grosbeak busy with her finger while Christine extracts it from the net.
