24 November 2014

The wind was not as bad as the weather forecast made it out to be.  It also helped that the winds were from the Southwest which doesn't affect the nets as much as other directions.

I banded 25 new birds and had 18 recaptures of 8 different species today.  Good numbers of Yellow-rumped Warblers were out today with 22 of them banded.

More rain is in the forecast for the next couple of days but after that it looks like the last 4 days of the season (Thursday - Sunday) will have sunny skies and cooler temperatures.

1 Ruby-crowned Kinglet
1 Gray Catbird
22 Yellow-rumped Warbler (Myrtle)
1 Swamp Sparrow

1 Ruby-crowned Kinglet
1 Hermit Thrush
5 Gray Catbird
7 Yellow-rumped Warbler
1 Song Sparrow
1 Swamp Sparrow
1 White-throated Sparrow

# of Recaptures:  18
# of Species:  8
Effort:  142.1 net-hours
Capture Rate:  30.0 birds/100 net-hours
