Sunday's Results

Sorry I missed yesterday's post - I was not feeling well after banding but I just posted yesterday's results here: 


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!
