Yesterday I spent a couple of hours with some of the folks at the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory (PEPtBO). They were actively collecting birds from the nets to record vital statistics in their bird banding efforts. These activities serve as their primary objective in monitoring bird migration during the Spring and Fall months and is also part of a nation-wide collaborative program of Bird Studies Canada called the Canadian Migration Monitoring Network.
I was quite impressed by this dedicated group of volunteers and the work they do. I captured images of some birds I recognized and many I didn't (life-long learning). I hope you enjoy the photos and consider supporting the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory, a non-profit organization.
