12 September 2014

The dip in bird activity continued with only 25 new birds and 6 recaptures of 13 different species.  We also captured a Ruby-throated Hummingbird on the last net run of day.  This bird was released without being banded as special permission is needed from the Bird Banding Lab to band hummingbirds.  There is some rain in the forecast for the next couple of days - hopefully it will stay away from banding station.
