Taiwan Dunlin!

Brad Wilkinson, the other shorebird guy up here on the Colville, found a banded Dunlin today on our North Plot. Turns out to be a bird banded on the wintering grounds in Taiwan! After hearing about the bird, I obviously went out and saw/took pictures. Hopefully we will know more about this gent soon.

I took a crapload of pictures to make sure I got the combo on the flag. I'd say it went well.

Mr. Taiwan
We have been finding Greater White-fronted Geese nests like crazy lately, but shorebird nests are still few and far between. It seems that the birds are more active now after that wind storm we had, so I have high hopes for the future.

I'm also still looking for a fall job. Anyone?
