A slow morning with only 8 birds handled, but two were new species for the season: Golden-crowned Kinglet and Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher. The gnatcatcher was also the first of the species ever caught since beginning of banding in 2010. Thanks as always to our three volunteers of the day. Next banding is tomorrow, Friday, April 14 at the Air Quality site.
New Banded: Ruby-crowned Kinglet 2 Golden-crowned Kinglet 1 Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 1 N. Cardinal 2 Song Sparrow 1 White-Throated Sparrow 1
