Featherbed Lane Bird Banding Station Field Trip Report
Tom Cosmas, Mark Witmer and Hannah Suthers
Hannah Suthers welcomed a visit by a group of folks from WCAS at the Featherbed Lane
Bird Banding Station on September 18 and presented a few of the captured birds. She and the
other volunteers enlightened the human visitors with a demonstration of the data collected
about the avian 'guests' who visit the mist nets.
