The Fledgling Bird Identifiers had a great "Big Day" on Saturday October 5th. They started out with George Matz ( A big thanks to him volunteering to go with them!) at the Beluga Sough and Baycrest Trail. Then after some refueling they went to Wynn Nature Center; Reber Trail; the Reservoir; overlooks at Beluga Slough; refueling again at Starvin Marvin's and then to Jason Sodergren's for a great time with two owls banded.
A total of 20 species were sighted- the best besides the owls was a Downy Woodpecker at Wynn. It was a good Big Day! Jason taught them how to enter their data on E-bird. They have another event planned for next Sunday the 13th but are watching weather to decide what they are doing and then may call for some help again – so stay posted.
