McGILL BIRD OBSERVATORY

SITE PROFILE

NET LOCATIONS

The V nets are arranged as an open-ended square at the edge of the small wooded area a bit south of the banding station.  They are used only for winter banding.  During winter, six feeders are stocked within the net square.  The vegetation within the square is mostly hawthorns.  V2 runs along the edge of the woods, with spruces and balsam firs along its length on one side.  V1 and V3 are perpendicular to V2, and V4 is parallel to it on the far side of the hawthorns.  V3 and V4 are the most exposed of the nets, but overall the area is quite well sheltered by the conifers.
