A better weather day for this morning's banding. A total of 16 birds handled (2 as recaptures) of 8 different species. A little below average for total birds handled. Best birds of the day were Yellow-belied Flycatcher and Chestnut-sided Warbler. Thanks to our veteran volunteers and welcome to 10 new banders-in-training who helped out today. Next banding day is Monday, Sept. 11 at the Air Quality site.
