Friday's Results

We were short on staff and high on tide this morning so we only were able to open 8 nets.  We banded 13 new birds and had 16 recaptures of 7 different species.  All of the 13 new birds were Yellow-rumped Warblers as well as 6 of the recaptures.  We did have 3 more returning Yellow-rumps each being banded on 1/17/11, 11/26/11, and 11/29/11. 


We should be able to open up all of the nets in the morning and get back into the swing of things for the rest of the season.
