FOS: Cape May Warbler, Blue Grosbeak, House Finch

I knew we were gonna be in for a lot of birds by all the nocturnal flight calls we heard in the sky while opening the nets this morning.  We banded 106 new birds and had 16 recaptures of 17 different species.  The first hour and a half was fast and furious as that was when a majority of today's birds were captured.  We did our first net run right at sunrise at 7:15am.  The nets were surprisingly quite then.  But as we rechecked the nets on our way back to the table they started to fill up with birds.    

We added three new species for the fall:  Cape May Warbler (2), Blue Grosbeak (2), and House Finch (1).
