Sorry I missed yesterday's post - I was not feeling well after banding but I just posted yesterday's results here: http://kiawahislandbanding.blogspot.com/2012/09/saturdays-results_23.html
We banded 60 new birds and had 1 recapture of 15 species today. Palm Warblers gave Common Yellowthroats a run for their money early in the morning, but Palms were eventually edged out by the end of the day. We had a good diversity of species as well as two new species for the 2012 fall season: House Wren and Wood Thrush.
I am predicting that the next two days will be very good for banding with north winds and much cooler temperatures. Unfortunately for the Chicago Cubs (which I am currently watching as I write this post), the wind is blowing in from left field but that is the right direction for good bird migration!
