It rained. The rain stopped. The rain started again! Only two hours of banding this morning and a very poor showing as indicated in the numbers below. We are well below average for numbers of total birds to date. Our numbers for Catbirds as an example are only about 30% of what they have been in past years. Thanks to our intrepid volunteers who endured a "boring" banding day and got plenty wet in the process. Next banding is this Friday, Sept. 15 at the Air Quality site.
New Banded: Gray Catbird 2 N. Cardinal 1
Recaptures: Ovenbird banded 9/7/17
