  • Oystercatcher Diaries 2017: Field Week 3

    By Susan Heath The wind was too high to go out to East Matagorda Bay on Monday and because I was attending a Loggerhead Shrike Working Group meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday, I didn’t have any available days to switch to so we were only able to get out to West Galveston Bay this week. In addition, our faithful photographer ... Read More The post Oystercatcher Diaries 2017: Field Week 3 appeared fi...

This year we’ll be monitoring the birds in West Galveston Bay and East Matagorda Bay once a week. We’ll be putting nanotags on 10 adults and 5 chicks so we can track their movements using our new Motus tower network. This project ... Read More The post Oystercatcher Diaries 2017: Field...
