Another successful trip to Fort McCoy. This time we brought along our bird bander, Nate. Not many birds were netted, but some of them did have ticks!!!! We also saw a few young medium mammals. This little opossum was very cute :). This mole was enjoying the refugia in one of our pitfall buckets and was happy to return to her tunneling when released.
