Another slow day of banding with only 14 new birds and 5 recaptures of 7 different species. The highlight was another returning Yellow-rumped Warble! This individual was originally banded on 11/13/11.
The weather will be deteriorating over the next day as Hurricane Sandy makes its way up from Florida. The storm is predicted to stay far offshore from South Carolina but will be getting rain and high winds for several days. We will probably be forced to shut down KIBS for the weekend - maybe longer.
