Today we banded 53 new birds and had 13 recaptures of 10 different species. We had a good diversity of species among recaptures including the Sharp-shinned Hawk that we banded on Thursday. Another interesting recapture was a House Wren that was originally banded on 10/28/10! We continue to see very good site fidelity among wintering migrants at KIBS especially among Yellow-rumped Warblers and House Wrens.
