Newly banded birds totaled 51 with 23 recaptures. Myrtle (Yellow-rumped) Warbler was the number one bird of the day with 15 new birds followed by Hermit Thrush - 7, Red-winged Blackbird - 6, and White-throated Sparrow - 5.
Sixteen species were captured new for the day. An Eastern Phoebe graced us with its presence today. As always the Fox Sparrow is a treat to see up close and personal. Besides Myrtle Warbler we had a new Magnolia Warbler and Blackpoll and the Black-throated Blue Warbler recaptures.
Many Pine Siskins and a few Purple Finches flew over this morning. We were not graced with a Purple Finch catch today.
Tomorrow appears to be another copy of today as far as weather with SW winds strong. Looking at maybe Tuesday for a change but who knows???
