Anser Charter School visits LP!

This morning, Ann Moore's kindergarten class from Anser Charter School in Boise traveled up to Lucky Peak to participate in songbird banding. The morning was quite busy (128 new birds banded) with mostly Ruby-crowned Kinglets and White-throated Sparrows. Highlights were a Townsend's Warbler, Fox Sparrow, Red-naped Sapsucker, Warbling Vireo, and 2 Golden-crowned Sparrows.

With this high pressure system pushing its way through this week, it is shaping up to be a stellar week for migration--both for songbirds and for raptors! Plan to come on up if you can!
