Heat + Humidity + Southwest Winds = Slow Day of Banding

Another slow morning with only 8 new birds and 7 recaptures of 6 different species.  This trends looks like it will continue all week long.  

We had some time to key out the "Traill's" Flycatcher in hopes that we might be able to separate out an Alder or Willow.  But of course, like most of them, there was too much overlap in the measurements for a certain ID.
