Wednesday, September 11, 2013

We banded 21 new birds and had 5 recaptures of 12 different species.  Despite waking to northerly winds this morning, we did not have that much bird activity.  We banded two Common Ground-Doves;  one adult male and one juvenile male.  The ground-doves at KIBS have been very vocal lately calling almost constantly all morning long.  Common Yellowthroats have been the most common bird banded over the past couple of weeks.  We are still waiting for that first big push of yellowthroats to come through.  We did band 60 of them one day last week but that was not the "big push".  Maybe it will happen this weekend!
