One Blackbird a Day

mandag 26. oktober 2020
af Amelie Zeller

After we GPS-tagged the first Blackbird (Solsort) for the ICARUS Global Thrush Project yesterday evening, we celebrated all together and went out for dinner in Skagen last night. We had a nice evening and especially enjoyed having Lisa as our guest yesterday and today.

Then, this morning we were excited to catch our second Blackbird (Solsort) in our nets at Kabeltromlen in the first round! It is this first calendar year female.

Else, we didn’t catch so many birds today. Among them was this Fieldfare (Sjagger)

WhatsApp Image 2020 10 26 at 11.01.44We closed early and used our time listening to an interesting presentation by Chris. He talked about his work in Peru for the organization “Fauna Forever”. He told us about their projects and focused on talking about the different birds they catch. It was also interesting to hear how they age and sex birds there, as you cannot think in calendar years like you do it here in Europe.

In the afternoon, Christina was working on editing the videos from the presentation. Simon and Lisa left for Aalborg. Before sunset Chris, Aurora, Martin and I will open the Owl-Nets at Grenen and will try and catch that Barn Owl (Slørugle) we saw a couple of days ago.
