Keeping Up With The Avians - Bird Banding

Last week members of Adrift Lab braved the early hours of the morning once again to participate in a bird banding trip. As discussed in our last article on bird banding, the aim of the process is to build long-term data sets that allows for meaningful analysis.

The group only banded three birds in the trip, including a butcherbird. The picture above contains an entertaining (and often accurate) quote about the species from a Western Australian bird guide.
