We only banded 21 new birds along with 12 recaptures of 12 different species. It appears that all the birds that were at KIBS yesterday have cleared out to make room for the next wave of migrants. It looks like there might be a weak cold front that will move through during the middle of the week, so hopefully it will bring some birds with it.
I felt like I have been neglecting our resident species, so here is a photo of a fiesty Carolina Wren that was banded today.
