A new research article shows that claims about wildfire danger in Spotted Owl habitat by our previous administration were not accurate. In a newly published article, much of the call to remove timber is shown to be not based on good science. Read the news release here.
On a brighter note, more young Purple Martins are sporting new "bling" that consists of a nice silver band on the right leg and a nice red band on the left leg. I banded 35 more birds today and will do about 40 more tomorrow.
