Bird Banding Continuing Success on Bass Islands

Common Yellowthroat taken by Shane Roberts at Middle Bass Island East Point Preserve.

2018 bird banding totals for the Bass Islands are now available.  Thanks to bird-banders Tom Bartlett, Dr. James Marshall, Tom Kashmer, and all their assistants, scribes, extractors for the efforts this year. Lake Erie Islands Conservancy appreciates, too, the permission from Dr. Bill Cleveland and Barb and Mark Barnhill for the use of their property for banding.  The data is invaluable for how the Put-in-Bay Township Park District manages their preserves and for obtaining grant funds to protect more habitats for migratory and resident birds.
