Long Point Bird Observatory Instructional Video - How to tie a mist net pole

By Stuart A. Mackenzie

LPBO

The first installment of the LPBO Technical series tackles the very simple but integral skill of tying a mist net pole. There are of course many ways to tie a net pole, but this video shows a method used for decades at LPBO. I'm still not entirely sure of the exact origin or designer of the knot and I'm sure other variations exist. Enjoy and comments are welcome.
The Long Point Bird Observatory has begun to develop a series of short instructional videos covering basic to advanced aspects of bird monitoring. I'll post them here as more are developed and/or changes are made, and I will post a permanent location at a later date. For now they are hidden from public viewing, but feel free to circulate widely to anyone that would benefit.
