Catchin' da birdies!

Today, I went to Ridgewall with Rachel and Karrith again. We caught 5 or 6 birds I think. Two of them threw up, and we collected the vomit in little jars and poured alcohol in with it to stop the digestion. It was pretty cool to see what the birds had been eating. We also put GPS tags and leg bands on them. The GPS tags are bigger than you would think they would be. They are about an inch (maybe inch and a half) long and half an inch thick. We taped them to the middle tail feathers, and painted their tails orange. We spent about 6 1/2 hours out today. We were supposed to leave at 11:30, but when I got to their house, they were watching the Ghana - Uraguay soccer game. So we waited to leave until noon. At around 9:00, we all went to the 4th of July dance. No one really danced. They all just kind of stood in a circle and bobbed around. Haha. The music was ohkay though. They played Enter Sandman by Metallica, and that was my favorite part of the night. At about 1:00am, John John got out some fireworks, and we watched those for a little bit. Now I think I'm going to go to bed because I'm tired after climbing of those cliffs all day.
More later.
Peace out!
