Wind and fog again...

We had light wind and fog again today with warm morning temperatures at 60 degrees rising to 86 degrees by noon. A hot one today but still many thrushes around. A little over 5 hours of opened nets produced 111 newly banded birds with 46 recaptures. Twenty-two species were caught including 6 warbler species.

Top birds captured were Swainson's Thrush 23, Blackpoll Warbler 19, Gray-cheeked Thrush 17, White-throated Sparrow 12, Hermit Thrush 7, Purple Finch 5.

Highlights for the day:First Yellow-bellied Sapsucker for the fall season. A Blue-headed Vireo and 3 Black-throated Blue Warblers were still around.
