2010 Autumn ringing started! August 16

Today is the 1st day. Another exciting season in Aras Bird Research and Education Center with new volunteers around the world. We hope everything will be in our hearts...

First ringing day was quite fine. Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia) was the first bird to be ringed. Scops owl (Otus scops) was the last and the most emotive one.
10 different species out of 19 birds in total were ringed.

Besides, It is nice to see Long-eared Owl (Asio otus), Bee-eaters (Merops apiaster) and Rollers (Coracias garrulus) being very active near the nets.

Good birding!...:)

Here are the birds ringed today:

-Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia)
-Marsh Warbler (Acrocephalus palustris)
-Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus)
-Great Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus)
-Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)
-Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava)
-Syrian Woodpecker (Dendrocopos syriacus)
-Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin)
-Lesser Whitethroat (Sylvia curruca)
