Ambleside School 1st Grade---May 6, 2011
We hurried back from HEB Camp to set up our nets at the Hummer House for a banding demonstration the next day for first grade students from Ambleside Elementary. The students from Ambleside are always well prepared and interested in the banding process and the birds. We showed how we retrieve birds from the nets and how we band and gather information about each bird. We also showed why banding birds is important for learning about birds. It was a great morning. We banded 31 birds representing sixteen species in a short time period.
