Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report-Chatfield Station, 4-25-18
Opening day at Chatfield was a typical spring morning - gorgeous blue
skies, no wind, and frozen nets from the rain turned to snow the night
before. Also typical for this time of year - not a lot of captures.
Banded 7 birds:

House Wren 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Song Sparrow 3
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1

There were at least 2 Cooper's Hawks around looking for breakfast, which
limited songbird movement. It seemed like there was a male Towhee taunting
us from a tree near almost every net; maybe we will start catching them
tomorrow........

Come visit! Station is open daily, weather permitting, through the end of
May, except for May 10-12 and 28. We open nets about 6:30 and close around
noon. If you would like to visit on a weekend, you must pre-register - go
to the Audubon Society of Greater Denver website.
<http://www.denveraudubon.org/> Perhaps the best time for birders to visit
is early in the morning during the week - fewer people and more birds!
(School groups start arriving each day between 9:30 and 10:30.)
