Birding Near Brenham TX B&B

April 15th, 2010 by Pamela Murski

Our local birding expert and tour guide, Darrell Vollert, conducted another successful bird banding workshop recently where a variety of birds including a female Cedar Waxwing and an immature Sharp-shinned Hawk were caught and banded.  The hawk was chasing a waxwing when it was netted in the woods. Workshop participant Phil held the hawk while we took pictures of the bird.  Another bird banding workshop will be held in early June. Mist nets will be set up in the Navasota River bottom and the focus will be on nesting flycatchers, vireos, warblers, and buntings.  Be sure to book your  lodging now so as not to miss this event.  You do not  have to be experienced to attend.  Darrell is a wonderful instructor and guide.
