Sunday's Results

Well, the "cold" front arrived a little later than forecasted but we still banded 32 new birds with 4 recaptures of 13 different species.  Common Yellowthroats finally have started to arrive in substantial numbers with 14 banded today.  Additionally, we banded two new species for the season - Eastern Wood-Pewee and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.  


We are expecting north winds and cooler temperatures the rest of week, so I am hoping for alot of birds!
