Bird collecting at Drakes Estero


Andrew and Ryan just spent about a week out of town, mostly seeking to collect estuarine birds at Drakes Estero for parasitology as part of our overall food web project. Drakes is a pretty gorgeous place, and is part of the National Park Service’s Point Reyes National Seashore. There is a lot of ranch land around there, and cows forage in some of our marshes!
