Birds first

One of the things I really love about working with MAPS is that the bird health and safety is a top priority. When I was training last week, Jeff said that at any time if I felt a bird was not doing well that I could let it go "no questions asked." We don't open if its cold, hot, windy, or if there is a chance of predation (bears). We also have a hospitle box for stressed birds. IBP chooses bird health over data any day. The data we are collecting is important, but they are never willing to sacrifice the health of the birds. That really works with how I feel; I can't think of anything that would turn me off quicker than a lack of respect for the birds we work with.

More later...
