It was the last day in QUBS. We went on our yesterday researches around Elbow Lake. What we need to do is to finish our assessment for wetland in Elbow Lake.
In the morning, mark took us to birds capturing at bio station with a mist net. We were very lucky that we caught 3 birds in few minutes, two white-breasted nuthatches and one chickadee. Mark told us how to identify a bird with guide books. Then, we found two woodpeckers on the trees; it was someone first time to see woodpeckers. Cool, right?!

About 10:30 we arrived at the Elbow Lake and continued with our researches. Every group got a good idea and worked very hard on it. We worked on aquatic plants, another on fishes, etc. After 6h walking through jungles, we finished our task and went back to QUBS. We found that field work was really tough. You should know clearly what you need in the field research as well as find a suitable place to settle your experiment. Also, you would come across jungles and dangerous animals and plants.
About 6:00 pm we arrived at QUBS. Last supper! And we got packed in the evening. Lots of tiny things. Bye QUBS, bye yuxiang Wang and steve Lougheed, bye everyone in the QUBS.
