BANDING REPORT- Neawanna Wetland Preserve

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

Notes: Bright and sunny, 70°F by 08:00 with an east wind, not much
action. As reported earlier, we saw a ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK that
failed to land in a net. We also saw a flock (at least 4) PACIFIC-
SLOPE FLYCATCHERS, almost certainly a family group catching flies
together. Two GREEN HERONS spent most of the morning on the pond
by the banding station. We also saw 5 species of butterflies.
