The first wrens of the year

After a week of getting to know the field site and learning the ropes (including introductions to telemetry, using GPSes, finding birds, etc.) the students are getting into their projects. We also had a BBQ at the airstrip with locals where the students were introduced to the Ozzie game of bush skittles.

In other news, we caught three fledglings this morning–evidence of some successful breeding during the wet season!
