OK everyone, helps us knock this out of the park. We are doing a FREE, all-day wood duck event on March 29, with rocketnetting, checking nesting boxes, and a luncheon with a talk about our research with a fundraiser which has some good prizes. We are also doing a 6-pull raffle ($1000 total) in which you can only enter with wood duck bands from the NV wood duck project (~83% of our recoveries come from the Fallon area).
Jeff Wasley has donated for the 5th time, a 5 day hunt to Izembek in which 100% of the bid is used for student led research examining effects of hunting. Spread the word that there is a hunt out there, with Jeff, as an auction item. Many people want to go there, and they can do so while supporting research like Jeff used to do and I still try to do. We take phone in bids.
Also, my past advisor, the worlds’ authority on brant, donated an almost week long trip to the Tutakoke River Brant colony to help band brant and see a ton of other cool birds. Even old moss-covered branters can still learn a few new things on this trip I bet!
All the info is on the Nevada Waterfowl Association Website. I'll be updating it weekly. Tons of info in the program, so please check it out!
