Banding Doves

After breakfast this morning we met with Sarah Dippold from the Pennsylvania Game Commission to band doves. The bands are placed on the birds to help identify them and people contact the game commission to give any information they may find. We checked all of the traps and unfortunately the rain persuaded the doves to stay away from the bait. Even though we could not band any birds, Sara talked to us about how the Pennsylvania Game Commission bands other birds like ducks and geese. Although it was cold and raining, we still had a lot of fun enjoying the protected wildlife there.
