Jacob's Property

Wilkes University owns over 100 ha near Blakeslee, PA. It was cut over then donated to the University. Beautiful property. We were there to catch birds and get blood samples to detect blood parasites using molecular methods. We caught several titmice and chickadees but were unprepared to catch so many at once so we kept once of each species. We also picked up a raven at the site and a few blue jays. Afterwards we had our fill of catching birds we took a walk to the pipeline, which was just widened and another pipe added.
