The students saw a brown creeper in one of the nets on the property and watched as the scientist carefully took the bird from the net and bagged it for tagging and release back into the wild. The scientists explained the tagging process, showing the importance of identifying trends in bird migration and populations, and brought out several birds to release in front of the students.
