A little snow and Erin checks off on Phoenix

We got about 20 inches of fresh snow last week. Because of the previous heavy frost and the snow was very moist, it accumulated on the netting. The only way to get it down is to knock it down. It's not an easy task, but it needs to be done. Too much snow on the netting will cause it to tear and or collapse.

In the mean time there are still birds in the flight center. We need to keep and eye on them so we don't accidentally harm them or vise versa.

The temps were near 0°f. Gary and Warren were hard at it while I had to come in once or twice to thaw my mustache out.

Erin checked off on Phoenix the osprey on Saturday. I missed it due to work but Cindy took this picture for me. Congrats Erin!
