Friday's Results: The Last Day of the 2012 Fall Season

For the final day the 2012 fall banding season, we banded 25 new birds and had 18 recaptures of 8 different species.  It was a typical late November mix of species with Yellow-rumped Warblers dominating.  I will be putting together a summary post sometime over the weekend with the season's totals and highlights.  Winter banding will begin around December 10th with banding occurring every 10 days through the end of March.  In addition, our second season of winter marsh sparrow banding will begin with sometime around December 12th to coincide with the higher (> 6 feet) daytime high tides.
