Canada Goose catching in NL
13 juli 2010 18:26
In the Netherlands, we collect blood from breeding geese for our research into the role of diseases and parasites in bird populations.
This project BIRDHEALTH focusses on arctic breeding birds, but we use temperate breeding geese for comparison.
Today, Berend Voslamber is catching Greylag geese in the province of Groningen. We start at 6 in the morning at a site very close to my home.
The picture is from the second site at the Schildmeer. Janwillem, my son is helping us during the day and shown on the right of the picture.
