FOS: House Wren and House Finch

We had another productive day at the banding station with 57 new birds and 12 recaptures of 18 species.  For the second day in a row we had very good species richness.  As we approach October, I expect the species richness to increase even more.  We had two more first-of-the-seasons:  House Wren and House Finch.  I thought this was fairly early for House Wren but after looking back at previous seasons, it is right on schedule.

I am always amazed by the eye color of Common Ground-Doves!
