Diary for my Ecuador Trip with GVI

Mist Netting


Last night a few of use stayed at a Sat camp in Jungle Hammocks, which i did not  find that comfy. 1st thing today we did Mist Netting near the Sat camp where we had net set up and every so often we checked them and removed any birds caught which we then weighed etc, identified and ringed. I had a Great Billed Hermit Hummingbird on my hand. It was not dead as you may think from the photo it was actually just resting until I tilted my hand and it flew off.

    Mist nets are good for bats too? No mention of them yet!
