BANDING REPORT- Neawanna Wetland Preserve
08 September 2002

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: We managed three hours of banding before the rains hit this
morning. There were a few birds that might qualify as migrants,
but mostly it was CEDAR WAXWINGS and PURPLE FINCHES. Seen during
surprise catch of the day was a BELTED KINGFISHER which was let go
unbanded, because I don't carry bands that size. We did get a few
pictures, though.

hears every sound and puzzles out its meaning with a cleverness
that amazes those with ears who hear not.
