Subject: Bird netting
I spent an interesting and delightful morning in my yard with a field
research assistant working on the West Nile virus project with Catherine
Bradley. He set up 3 nets and bagged 11 birds, including a female BLACK-
THROATED BLUE warbler (first I've seen in my yard) and a ROSE-BREASTED
GROSBEAK, then checked them out including blood samples, height, weight,
etc. If you haven't had the pleasure of watching this done I'd suggest
you sign up the next time somebody puts out a call for home volunteers.
It's a real good learning experience.
