Every spring Carl volunteers to help Mike Yates and Dr. Bill Seegar of Earthspan (www.Earthspan.foundation) trap, band, and collect blood and feather samples from northern migrants headed north from their wintering areas in the southern hemisphere to their arctic nesting sites, across the North American arctic and Greenland. Mike and Bill have been doing this amazing research for some 40 years now and they’ve amassed an incredible, irreplaceable archive of blood samples and banding records that have benefited conservation efforts directed at peregrine falcons for decades.
