Canada Warbler

Bird activity slow down today with 21 new birds banded and 9 recaptured of 8 different species.  The bird of day was a Canada Warbler!  This is only the second ever Canada Warbler banded at KIBS.  The last one was banded last fall in early September.

A cold front is expected to move through overnight which should bring in a new crop of birds.  I am hoping that we will have a good day tomorrow but the wind could pose a problem.
