2017CavityNestersWorkshop (2)

We hope to have Lisa Rock and Tom Kashmir visit the Bass Islands and band the purple martins at the Scheeff East Point Preserve this summer in the rigs that member Paula Ziebarth maintains. We received the rigs with a grant from the Columbus Zoo with the assistance of member Darlene Sillick. If you have purple martin or tree swallow nesting boxes on the islands and would like to monitor them or have the birds banded, let us know.
