Typical Early September Banding

We banded 17 new birds and had 12 recaptures of 13 different species.  Unlike most mornings bird activity seemed to increase after 9:00am.  Usually, the first two hours after sunrise are the most productive but not today.  There was a pretty good "dew load"  on the vegetation this morning making everything wet.  Maybe the birds were waiting to things to dry out a bit before they started foraging for food.
