Finally a non-rain day for banding, even though there was a heavy frost at start-up. An average day for this time of year with 12 birds of 7 species handled. First Hermit Thrush of the season and a Brown Creeper (which we rarely catch). Thanks to the four volunteers who helped and our seven visitors. Next banding day is Tuesday, April 11.
