I have recently begun my fourth co-op work term and so far the island life has been everything I have expected and more! Upon my arrival on Mandarte Island, monitoring of the resident song sparrow population (Melospiza melodia) and banding of their nestlings began. Since then I have been collecting data on the territories, movement and feeding behaviour of song sparrows and spent some time mapping the territories of fox sparrows as well.

My co-op with Canfor, which is based out of Vanderhoof, has been filled with exciting moments of learning and progress. This is my first time indulging in field operations in the winter and it took me a while to find my comfort zone. My crew has been fantastic at keeping the morale up, whether that is a -15 degree Celsius day or a warm and mushy afternoon. Typically we go through a list of blocks that Canfor would like to harvest and then conduct a recce on a chosen block.
