That's a lot of people!!! And what an experience for the high schoolers!

I didn't participate in any banding sessions until college. We banded some of the migrating song birds in a woods on campus for an ornithology class, and I helped out a couple of students doing research on raptors. Banding a raptor is a lot different than banding a nuthatch. I remember how much in awe I was of the weight and power of the hawks we worked with!
