Wednesday's Results: Blackpoll Warblers!

We banded 17 new birds and had 6 recaptures of 12 different species today.  The "Bird-of-the-Day" was not 1, but 2 BLACKPOLL WARBLERS.  These represent the 1st fall records for Blackpoll Warbler at the current location of KIBS!  In 2009, during my pilot season I banded a Blackpoll Warbler at an alternate site at the east end of Kiawah Island.  A Blackpoll Warbler was also banded at KIBS during our spring migration monitoring in 2010.  A couple of Northern Waterthrushes put in an apperance this morning as well after being absent from the nets for a week and a half.
