Archosaurs class at home

Yesterday [last week.. not sure why this didn't post] we had class at the house and the goal was to get kids to handle wild birds and show them how to get blood, make blood smears, turn blood smears into slides to look for blood parasites and observe different cell types, and get blood in capillary tubes that get centrifuged and we measure hematocrit. 

We ended up catching three house sparrows, a song sparrow, and two white-throated sparrows. Best part of the day was watching the kids I've trained work with the kids in the class.
