Muir Beach

Today we ventured into the Muir Beach area to join the PRBO team, Ed and Megan, for a session of mist-netting and bird-banding.

The small bag that Ed is carrying is what is used to transport birds that are caught to the cataloguing site.

Megan is disengaging a Spotted Towhee from one of eleven mist-nets setup in the area.

Megan is about to release a Golden-crowned Sparrow after the cataloguing and banding process. Other birds we saw for banding today were the Lesser Gold Finch and a Bushtit.
