Method: Up to six 9m mist nets are placed in mixed Red Alder/

Notes: Vandals (or possibly Visigoths) took the net poles from
three of the net sites (it's between a community baseball field
and a grade school playground). We didn't get replacements up until
0730hr so we missed the first 2 hours of scheduled netting. Here's
the interesting part. Mathematically, one would predict 13.7 birds
in 3.5 hours and we caught 14. Is this sight consistent or what?
