In the Fall of 2011 Lynda and I and four other curious birders wanted to find out more and experience more about the world of bird banding. We were all incredibly lucky to get to spend ten amazing days at the Long Point Bird Observatory (LPBO) in Port Rowan. Our adventure started at the LPBO mainland banding station, Old Cut, located in Port Rowan. Here we were introduced into the world of a bird banding station. We were at Old Cut for three days where we all got our feet wet learning how tro scribe (recording the required information for a bird that is banded) and the actual banding of the bird. We ended our experience at the Tip banding station which is accessible only by boat. As interesting and unique a location as Old Cut is, the Tip is truly an amazing experience. Stu Mackenzie dubbed our adventure the 2011 Fall Expedition we called ourselves, OOP's - Old Ornithologists Program. The acronym OOP's definetly was appropriate, as we all learned there were some oops!
