UCMO BioBlitz

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.

      It was a cold day at the University of Central Missouri’s Pertle Springs. This did not dampen the spirits of of the UCMO student chapters of The Wildlife Society, American Fisheries Society, and Stream Team. They brought a sense of community cheer and enthusiasm for cataloging species including plants, invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and birds.
     Event organizer and biology instructor, Leslie Bilbrey, invited us along to conduct mist-netting and banding. We found places out of the wind to place a few nets and ended up catching a couple Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, American Robins, White-throated Sparrows, and Cardinals.
