Wednesday's Results

Painfully slow day of banding.  We only banded 4 new birds with 4 recaptures of 5 different species.  Highlights of the day were a female HOODED WARBLER and a male COMMON GROUND-DOVE.

Hooded Warbler (hatch-year, female)

Common Ground-Dove (second-year, male)

We have been catching several Painted Buntings in the nets lately with a majority of them being juvenile (hatch-year) birds.  Hatch-year Painted Buntings can be separated fairly easily from adults by the presence of light buffy edging on their greater coverts.
