BANDING REPORT- Neawanna Wetland Preserve
09 June 2001

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.

Notes: A male WILSON'S WARBLER, missing its right leg at the
tibio-tarsal joint (and completely healed over), was captured
this morning.  It was released without a band as we figured 
we'd recognize it if captured again.  3 of the 4 SONG SPARROWS 
captured today were hatch-year birds (one a recaptured HY from 
last week).

Mike Patterson               Alas, to wear the mantle of Galileo,
Astoria, OR                  it is not enough to be persecuted    
celata at            by an unkind establishment,
                             you must also be right.
