Five warblers were seen or heard today in the marsh including: Black-and-white, Yellow, Myrtle, Western Palm, and Common Yellowthroat. Another highlight were three Eastern Towhees that stayed in our nets long enough for us to remove them and put a band on them. Normally with their long tails and short wings they are able to flip themselves out of the net before someone is there to extract them. Forty-three new birds and 15 recaptures were the catch of the day in 138.0 net hours.
Tomorrow and Friday look to be increasingly better each day. The winds are to shift to the south. Enjoy the early spring!
