Quality not quantity is the name for the day!

With a southerly wind today I had hopes of having a few birds being blown back up along the lake. However, that did not happen at the Navarre migration station. Twenty new banded birds and 5 recaptures were in the bag for the day. Here are pictures of the highlights. They are much worth my time. What do you think? Highlight #1-take a look!

A nice looking female Connecticut Warbler! I believe we caught one of these because Sam Woods left the states today! He is still in search of this Bird! How about a quiz bird for the second highlight? It is not a tough one. Look at the beautiful rusty wings and its long tail
And here is the whole bird.

Maybe on Friday we may see the wind come from the northwest so I will keep my fingers crossed. Enjoy the last day of Summer! As a special treat I like the photo of the head of the Yellow-billed Cuckoo!
