All of the banding assistants left this week, so I was flying solo this morning. The windy conditions kept the birds hunkered down and mostly out of the nets, and as a result I only banded 19 new birds along with 8 recaptures of 5 species. The wind died down a little bit around 11:00am and it became overcast. Consequently, I captured 13 birds on the last net round with a majority of those coming from just one net (net 14).
We continue to get birds that we have banded in previous seasons. Today's returns include:
1. Song Sparrow (11/07/14)
2. Yellow-rumped Warbler (11/20/14)
3. Yellow-rumped Warbler (11/28/14)
4. Northern Cardinal (01/25/13)
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of this season's Banding Assistants (Mattie, Chris, Nancy, Casey, Sean, Michael, and Ryan). You all helped to make the 2015 fall banding season a great success!
