Subject: [cobirds] FOS migrants, CSR, EL Paso Co, Monday
Hey COBirders,

Migration numbers have picked up some the last two days at Clear Spring Ranch. It helps that it hasn’t been gale force winds. I got blown out and couldn’t operate nets three times last week.

Notable migrants banded:
FOS Blue-gray Gnatcatcher - 3 banded Sunday (of flock of 5!) Ad M, Ad F, SY F, and one more banded Monday, Ad F.
FOS Yellow-breasted Chat - Second year M Monday
FOS Green-tailed Towhee - Second year, sex U

photos available for all of these, if you are interested.

FOS Lesser Yellowlegs - not banded, but seen wading in a flooded field
FOS N Rough-winged Swallow - one Sunday, 5 Monday

White-crowned Sparrows - still hanging around. I have banded more already this week than any previous spring.
LOTSA migrating Blue Jays - over 100 have gone by in the last 4 days.

And finally - today was the first multiple-warbler day - a banded Orange-crowned M, FOS singing Yellow Warblers, and high in the trees a flock of Yellow-rumps.
Not seeing as many as most springs, but it is still early, I guess.

Happy Migration,
Steve Brown
