SWAT Shut Down!
Long-tailed Weasel (with eye flash)
I made it official today . . . . the SWAT banding site is closed for the season. After an unwanted visitor showed some continued interest in my birds . . . . I made the decision to shut everything down for the safety of the birds. After discussing this situation with the Institute of Bird Populations, they agreed that my decision to shut down for the season is the best thing to do. This really breaks my heart doing . . . . since I “really” enjoyed this location and was catching some wonderful birdies. As of right now, I am unsure if next year I will be open the nets again and chance its re-appearance. If I do open the station again, any sign of the “Weasel” and the station will be shut down forever!!
The Problem Weasel
Please note that anyone planning on attending the 3rd of August session that I will be home in bed sleeping (and not banding)!! I am very sorry for having to do this but you can still attend the CLDC site schedule on the 4th. I will try to do a season wrap up when I get some time to look everything over!
