A little over 6 hours produced 100 new banded birds with 29 recaptures. This included 23 species with 12 species of warbler being caught. Sixteen warblers were heard at the station with one being a Connecticut Warbler which was on the wish list for bird of capture today but it did not happen. Maybe it will occur tomorrow for my great volunteer Dave. Highlights for the day were an Eastern Kingbird and a couple Philadelphia Vireos.
Traill’s Flycatcher - 25
Wilson’s Warbler - 15
Yellow Warbler - 8
Canada Warbler - 7
Common Yellowthroat - 7
Gray Catbird - 6
Red-eyed Vireo - 5
Another quiz bird to keep you all on your toes!
Many do not see the red on the head of the Eastern Kingbird
There is always something to learn in nature. Enjoy!
