With a crazy semester just a couple days behind me, another crazy bit of life takes its place. On my way to Kansas where I'll be spending the summer working as a field technician conducting line transect suveys for grassland breeding birds. Yes, quite a mouthful. It's part of a study being conducted by Emporia State University to determine whether or not rotational livestock grazing increases grassland productivity. The idea is that livestock will do the job that buffalo once did in these grasslands.
I have not posted in quite some time, but am planing to revive posting in order to keep family and friends up to date on my life in the prairie ☺. #loganairport#boston#ilovebirds
We had a spectacular day of wilderness and wildlife! The White Pelicans were very active on Eagle Lake and we got closer to them than I have ever been before. The male pelican develops a sail on his beak during breeding season. I had never seen it before.
