ROCKY POINT BIRD OBSERVATORY- BIRD NET REPAIR
Rocky Point Bird Observatory monitors bird populations using surveys and a technique called mist-netting, where we capture birds in nets, place a small band on their leg, take a few basic measurements, and release the birds unharmed to continue their activities. The mist-nets we use are made of fine thread, and are easily torn by tree branches, blackberry and other animals. Thus, repairing these nets is one of our main winter tasks. Visit the Rocky Point website for more details.
