Our New Mexico Curlew research partner, USFWS Biologist Kelli Stone, gets ready to release Lariat

Namesake: After a whirlwind trip in New Mexico, we were able to trap our 5th and final bird named “Lariat”, after the ranch her nest was located near. Lariat also refers to a rope used as a lasso, and she sure lassoed our hearts!
