NET LOCATIONS

The H nets are the newest addition to MBO, with H1 installed in late August 2005 and H2 following the next fall.  The first net begins just west of the banding cabin, leading to the south end of the back ponds, with hawthorns on either side of the lane.  It catches a surprising diversity of species in good numbers, including sparrows, warblers, vireos, and thrushes.  The second is a bit to the southwest, nestled between hawthorns, parallel to the main path leading down to Stoneycroft Pond.
