Birds of a Feather
Here are some pictures to go along with Turin's post of our activities yesterday. Today we tagged along with Christian and Austin at bird counts, starting bright and early at 5:30 AM in the rain. Turin and I discovered nesting behaviors might not be our guarantee for data, so we are thinking of narrowing our observations to most common species we see and record what they do in real forests versus teak and "cheese" monoculture forests.

sorry i couldn't rotate this, Christian. our clay-colored robin caught in the mist-net this morning in the rain!
and a shot of health and energy for good measure.
