Setting Up the Travel Pen
Photos and Story by Megan Kennedy, Operation Migration

We arrive at the future pen site with the travel pen hauled behind our tracking van. We use 16 panels in each pen. Those green and brown panels are extra visual barrier panels. We use them if we we must block something from the birds' view. If needed, those panels are set up separate from the pen.

The panels of the pen are strapped to the sides of the trailer while it’s being towed. After driving into the site, we position the trailer before unhooking it.
