There are still loads of White-throated sparrows and many Hermit Thrushes (17 recaptures) around but numbers of any other species are not what I would expect this time of year. A northerly cold front is really needed to get the birds back on track.
Top species newly banded:
Only two species of warblers were seen today: Myrtle (Yellow-rumped) and Blackpoll Warblers.
Nine species of sparrows were seen at Navarre: Eastern Towhee, White-throated Sparrow, White-crowned Sparrow, Fox Sparrow, Field Sparrow, Lincoln Sparrow *, Swamp Sparrow*, Song Sparrow*, and Slate-colored Junco (Dark-eyed Junco). (*banded species)
Rusty Blackbirds began moving around noon time today.
I don’t expect much change for tomorrow.
