Wednesday Work

Today we caught up a little more on weed spraying. We also did some work on a fence around Midway House (the refuge manager's house). We have to keep the birds from nesting next to the house because there's still lead paint chips around that the chicks will pick up and eat by mistake. They can get developmental problems, mainly "droop wing", where they can't hold their wings up. They don't end up making it, so we try to keep them away from places with lead paint. We don't have the money to get rid of 40 years worth of lead paint so we do a little at a time.
