Method: Up to six 9m mist nets are placed in mixed Red Alder/
Sitka Spruce with understory of Red Elder and Salmonberry along 
the the upper Coho Creek, Seaside, Clatsop Co. OR.  Captured

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?

Astoria, OR                  it is not enough to be persecuted

                             you must also be right.
