Thursday's Results: 4 new species!

Another windy day prevented us from opening all of the nets (we left one net closed and had to close two others early).  Despite the wind, we still had a very good day with 107 birds banded and 2 recaptures of 21different species.  We had several highlights including 4 new species for the 2012 fall season:  Tennessee Warbler, Pine Warbler, Swamp Sparrow, and Hermit Thrush!  In addition, we banded another Nashville Warbler, the 2nd of the season and 2nd ever banded at KIBS.
