To the USA!

This morning I had my last ringing session for NL for the coming two months. We didn't trap a lot of birds, due to the rain and strong wind. Main birds caught were Blackcaps, with one carrying an unknown Dutch ring.

Tomorrow I'll be leaving for America for two months! I will fly to Philadelphia, and from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh. All the flights to Philadelphia were canceled today because of the passing hurricane. Tomorrow the hurricane is over so I hope there will be no trouble for me.

I will be going to the Powdermill Avian Research Centre, situated in Pennsylvania. I will be helping at the ringing station for two months. I'm really looking forward to going there and experiencing the bird migration overseas. I've been to America before (New York), in 2009, but this will be a whole new experience, since I'll be there for the bird ringing!
