Friday's Results

It was a super slow banding day with only 11 new birds and 10 recaptures of 12 different species.  It was quite windy most of the morning and the winds had increased enough by 10:30am that we had to shut down early.  The highlight of the day was another recaptured Yellow-rumped Warbler.  This bird was banded on 3/14/11 during our winter banding season and has not been recaptured since! 


I am guessing that tomorrow will be slow again but there is a cold front coming on Saturday night so I have high hopes for Sunday and Monday.
