The Final Day of the 2013 Fall Season

I woke up at 5:00am and stepped outside to check on the weather.  The wind sounded like a freight train as it howled through the live oaks.  I turned around, shut off my alarm, and went back to bed.  What an uneventful way to end the 2013 fall banding season.     
I will be putting together a summary post sometime in the next couple of days with the season's totals and highlights. Winter banding will begin around December 10th with banding occurring every 10 days through the end of March. In addition, our third season of winter marsh sparrow banding will begin around December 4th to coincide with the higher (> 6 feet) daytime high tides.  If anybody is interested in helping out with marsh sparrow banding let me know - the more the merrier.

Thanks for following along with us during the 2013 fall migration banding season!  I'm already looking forward to next fall.
