Friday, December 23, 2005:  Dr. Jim Ingold, ornithologist at LSU-Shreveport, led the bird-banding efforts.  Other participants and visitors included Tom Walker of Jefferson; Diane Jones of Jonesville; Howard Solomon of Nacogdoches; Amy Solomon of Asheville, NC; Gary & Billie Wilder of Arlington, TX.

 

Weather Conditions:  Sunny and windy.  The morning low temperature was 37 F and the afternoon high was 64 F.
 

Number of Nets:  Thirteen (13).

 

Time:  We started putting up nets at 9:10 a.m. and the nets were closed by 4:30 p.m. 

 

Special Note:  Today we retrapped the Nashville Warbler which we banded two weeks ago -- a rare occurrence here at this time of year.  Most Nashville Warblers winter in Mexico and Central America.
