Field work next boxes

I am currently working as a field assistant on a project on tits in next boxes in an area east of Lund. The weather so far this season has ben G R E A T and I have really enjoyed having an excuse to skip computer work the last weeks. Not sad at all that I skipped Lundakarnevalen for working this weekend.

Most of the clutches have hatched and I’m looking forward to when they are 14 days old and will have lots to to ringing and taking DNA samples from them and their parents. Until then, here is a cute 7 days old marsh tit that is included in a experiment on clutch size manipulation that I ringed last week. So tiny! So cute!
