Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chatfield Station, 4-30-18
Still slow, but getting a little more interesting! Caught our FOS Yellow
Warbler; I think this is the first time ever that we've caught one in
April....our usual first date is May 5. Also caught (and released unbanded
as we don't do hummers) 2 hummingbirds - 1 Broad-tailed and 1
Black-chinned. 9 birds processed:

House Wren 5 (they are back in force; singing away)
Yellow Warbler 1
Spotted Towhee 1, banded 2016, recaught 2017. A stunning male.
Song Sparrow 1

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. Perhaps the best time for
birders to visit is early in the morning during the week - fewer people and
more birds! (School groups arrive each day between 9:30 and 10:30.)
