Late/wintering Prairie Warbler

With Little Bear being closed down for the season, we had a big crowd out at Captain Sam's this morning.  Unfortunately, there were not many birds to keep everybody busy.  There werea lot of smart phones that needed charging after banding today.

The highlight of today was a late (or overwintering) Prairie Warbler.  The bird did not have any fat, so there's a chance that he may be sticking around the station for a while.

Of the 9 recpatures we had today, 7 of them were banded in previous years.
1.  Swamp Sparrow:  10/27/14
2.  Gray Catbird:  11/22/14
3.  Yellow-rumped Warbler:  11/26/11
4.  Yellow-rumped Warbler:  11/3/14
5.  Yellow-rumped Warbler:  11/8/14
