The top species banded new for today:Hermit Thrush - 11
White-throated Sparrow - 7
Myrtle (Yellow-rumped) WarblerSwamp Sparrow - 6
Red-winged Blackbird - 5
We also caught a foreign banded White-throated Sparrow but the number was not in the Bird Banding Laboratory’s database yet. I am hoping the bander turns their data in soon. We do not get too many of other bander’s birds at our station (maybe 4-6 a year). It is always a treat to get a foreign bird and find out where it has been banded, when it was banded to determine how old it is, and to contemplate where it has been between here and there. The many thousands of miles these small birds travel is amazing.
