Now that I have my permit and (almost) all my gear, it’s time to get out there and start catching juncos! With my three awesome field assistants I hope to find, band, and monitor lots of juncos.
There won’t be any new posts until I get back, since I’ve been so busy preparing that I haven’t had time to write any in advance. Sorry!
Four people need a lot of food to live for a week, and apparently I need a lot of gear to study juncos… This was my living room/staging area last night:
My roommate is being patient with this because in a few weeks she’ll be filling our living room with her own field gear. I love living with a fellow field biologist!
Back with news in a week. In the meantime, wish Q good luck on his quals!
