Spent so much time in the field this week! Finally got out to a few of my plots up on the ridge, visited some of Ashley’s sites, and got to bask in the rambunctious presence of sooooo many pikas! Collected some occupancy data at three, but the majority are still under snowpack.
I even had an opportunity to go out with Vanessa and the chickadee crew, and was really impressed with the scope and intricacy of their organization.
I think trapping will start next week, and i’m really looking forward to having the chance to help out in the field with that.
