And then there were three . . .

It's still slow out there . . . We only banded 19 new birds and had 20 recaptures of 7 different species.  

Today was Josh and Claire's last day at the Kiawah Island Banding Station.  It was a pleasure to have them aboard this season!  They were an integral part of banding team and I wish them the best in their all of their future plans.
