Ellis Bird Farm Blog
Ellis Bird Farm continues to conduct Purple Martin research. On the evening of July 12, EBF staff joined Dr Glen Hvenegaard of the Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society and team members from the Beaverhill Bird Observatory to mass trap all the adult martins. This project, which entailed banding and recording all returned banded adult birds, was executed quickly and efficiently, with minimum stress to the birds. Results of the trapping will be posted soon.
