We had perfect banding conditions all morning long - no wind and overcast skies! And as a result, we did very good with 46 new birds and 26 recaptures of 9 different species. Yellow-rumped Warblers were the most abundant species with 39 banded. Incidentally, that put us over the 1000 mark for yellow-rumps for the fall!
