Regardless of the rain we had some good birds! Two Sharp-shinned hawks graced us with their presence. Unfortunately a White-crowned Sparrow did not zig when it should have zagged and a Sharpy chased it into the net! The Sharpy did not get away without a band. Before it rained we managed to capture 87 new birds and 28 recaptures in 4.5 hours. Most of the recaptures were White-throated Sparrows. Twenty-five species were captured in the nets including 11 warbler species.
Highlights for the day are Sharp-shinned Hawks and the best warbler was a Blackburnian Warbler!
Top 6 species for the day are:
Gray Catbird - 15
White-throated Sparrow - 10
Ovenbird - 7
Yellow Warbler - 6
Myrtle (Yellow-rumped) Warbler - 5
Wood Thrush - 5
