August 29, 2014

We had a few more birds at the banding station today, with 14 new birds and 11 recaptures totaling 25 birds from 7 species. We also recaptured an after second year male painted bunting today, which we originally banded on August 13, 2012 at Camp St. Christopher on nearby Seabrook island. Today was the first time we recaptured this bird since we originally banded him. 

He was a bit scruffy due to his body feather molt, but he still looked handsome, like a balding Orlando Bloom.
