Saturday, April 5, 2008:  Dr. Jim Ingold, ornithologist at LSU-Shreveport, led the bird-banding activities.  Other participants and visitors included Tom Walker of Jefferson, Ron Munden of Scottsville, and Beth Honea with her sons Jacob, Sam & Nathaniel, of DeBerry, Texas.  

 

Weather Conditions:  The morning low temperature was 49 F and the afternoon high was 65 F.  The sky was cloudy in the morning and clear in the afternoon.

Number of Nets:  Thirteen (13)

 

Time:  We started putting up nets at 9:15 a.m. and all nets were closed by 5:30 p.m. 

 

Next Banding Date:   We plan to band again on Saturday, May 3, which will be our last bird banding day for this season.  We will take a summer break and resume banding in the fall around October.  Watch our bird-banding home page or check with Tom Walker for the latest information [E-mail: twalkercaddolake(at)gmail.com].
