October 6, 2013

We had another slow day with 18 new birds and 26 recaptures of 12 different species.  It was an interesting day as a majority of the birds captured today were recaptures.  This is the first time this season that has happened. 

The next three days look questionable for banding.  I am hoping that we will be able to get out a little bit.  Rain and wind from Tropical Storm Karen should reach us late tomorrow morning and it appears that it will continue through Wednesday.  The storm will collide with a strong cold front moving across the Midwest which should bring us some cooler weather later in the week.  What does all this mean for migration?  Its hard to say at this point but the second half of the week may be pretty good.
