Navarre has been the site of many returning BLPWs during the fall migration season over the years, and this year is no exception. As of the first of October, we have encountered two Blackpolls previously banded in 2014. One was a Hatching Year (HY) bird banded on September 20, 2014 and captured again on September 27, 2015 as an After Hatching Year (AHY) male. The other Blackpoll was banded in Navarre on October 3, 2014 and returned to the same stopover site on September 28, this year. This puts great emphasis on the value of the Lake Erie Marsh region, arguably the most important stopover site for migrating Blackpoll Warblers in fall.
