Second Tufted Titmouse Ever Banded

Today we banded 17 new birds and had 7 recaptures of 10 different species.  We banded our 3rd Common Ground-Dove of season and two more got out of the net before we could our hands on them.  We also banded a Tufted Titmouse which is extremely common to Kiawah but very rarely seen at the banding station.  This was only the second Tufted Titmouse ever banded at KIBS!
