For the third year in a row Kathryn volunteered to do bird banding at the Crown Point station. She overcame flu-like symptoms prior to leaving and ended up staying in a hotel rather than camping with the pop-up camper. Below she is handling an Indigo Bunting.

Kathryn spent 3 days in Rochester attending a conference to gain continuing education credits. Eric finished out his spring AAU season with Mohawk Valley Elite. His tournament experience consisted of mostly losses with the recent exception of a sudden death win over Tri-Valley Players. Eric started doing face offs during lacrosse games.
Kathryn packed the pop-up camper for a 4 day trip to band birds at Crown Point. She couldn’t find the registration for her car. So we transitioned all her stuff to the truck, then she discovered she could get a temporary registration certificate, so we re-packed everything over to the Subaru and re-hooked up the pop-up.
Kathryn took the pop up camper up to Port Henry and volunteered at the Crown Point Bird Banding Station for a few days. She said “I’ve been pecked and clawed and pooped on. I saw up close and personal birds I’m familiar with, birds I’ve never seen before and even one I had never heard of. I’ve “picked,” banded, measured, and determined sex and age. The birds were amazing. The people were helpful and patient, interesting and easy to be with. I learned a lot and had a blast at Crown Point Bird Banding station.”
