Tuesday's Results: Rained out, sort of . . .

The rain started around 5:45am and the radar showed no sign of clearing for several hours so we all went back to bed.  But I continued to monitor the radar and the rain cleared out around 10:30am so I decided to give it another try.  The wind was much much stronger than the weather websites claimed but we were able to open a handful of nets for an hour and a half before it got too gusty to band birds safely. 


We banded 11 new birds and had 4 recaptures of 4 different species. 



1 Hermit Thrush

10 Yellow-rumped Warbler (Myrtle)



2 Carolina Chickadee

2 Gray Catbird (1 originally banded on 11/08/2010)

# of Recaptures:  4

# of Species:  4

Effort:  12.6 net-hours
