The Migratory Bird Crew was able to cover 481920 acres during the season. We recovered 1506 bird skulls from mine claim markers, hopefully preventing 1506 future birds from becoming trapped. The team was able to set two live birds free from two different mine claim markers, a season highlight for all of us. The crew pulled 2176 markers in all, more than half of them during the 6th and final hitch.
