No new Blackpoll Warblers but two recaptures today with loads of fat reserves. Myrtle Warbler was the only new warbler caught and banded today.
Of interest a juvenile female Peregrine Falcon flew over the station. Beautiful bird! Pine Siskins and American Goldfinches were flying over today as well.
Black Witch Moth
With all the great winds of the night a fresh dead Black Witch Moth was found near the Davis Besse Security building.
The wind is predicted to move to the west tomorrow with the passing of a weak cold front. Hope this helps the birds move south.
