Very Slow Banding Day

Bird activity around KIBS decreased substantially today with only 9 new birds and 7 recaptures of 7 different species being captured.  Some birds are on the move right now but we are still in the that post-breeding/pre-migration lull.  The warm temperature, humid air, and southerly winds are not helping us one bit.  The 10-day weather forecast shows no signs of changing so I think we may be stuck in this "bird void" a while.
