We banded 28 new birds and had 15 recaptures of 10 different species. We had some interesting recaptures including a Sharp-shinned Hawk, an Orange-crowned Warbler, and 3 birds that have returned after being banded in previous years. Those included a Swamp Sparrow (10/31/11), and two Yellow-rumped Warblers (1/17/11, 11/13/12). The bird of the day was a Field Sparrow, only the 3rd one of the 2012 fall season!
