Tuesday's Results: Song Sparrow (FOS)

Blustery conditions made it tough to band today.  We started off the morning with all of the nets open, but almost immediately had to close a few because the wind was too strong.  Every net round a couple more nets were closed and I finally decided to shut down all of the nets at 10:30am.  


We banded 35 new birds and 9 recaptures of 14 different species.  Today brought us our first Song Sparrows of the fall with 2 banded.  We also banded our 2nd Gray-cheeked Thrush and Marsh Wren of the fall.
