BANDING REPORT- Neawanna Wetland Preserve
22 January 2000

Method: Up to eight 9m mist nets are placed in mixed Oregon
Crabapple/Twinberry/Spruce along the the upper Neawanna River,
Seaside, Clatsop Co. OR.  Captured birds are measured, ringed 
with USBBL numbered metal bands and released.  Data on time of
capture and side of net captured are also recorded to gain
an understanding of movements through the area.

Winter sparrow efforts will place special emphasis on identifying
FOX SPARROWS, SONG SPARROWS and WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS to 
subspecies.

Notes: We took a chance that the weather report might
actually be right and lost.  The nets were up for only
20mins before the rains hit and didn't leave.  Sparrows
detected during the morning effort included SWAMP SPARROW,
LINCOLN'S SPARROW, and WHITE-THROATED SPARROW.
