1000th Gray Catbird

The early morning fog certainly did not deter the wave of Yellow-rumped Warblers that we banded today. A total of 134 birds were banded, 91 of which were Yellow-rumped Warblers. Today also marked a milestone for this year, as we banded our 1000th Gray Catbird. Our first Catbird for the season was caught on September 18th, which was also the day we banded our 1000th bird.
