Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chatfield, 5-6-18
Day started busier than most this season, but then fell off quickly.
Breakdown of the 12 new birds for the day plus the 2 nice returns from
prior years, along with a few notes:

Morning Dove 1
House Wren 7 (These guys are very active and noisy, and seem to be being
caught in fairly typical numbers now)
Yellow-breasted Chat 1 (FOS and a returning bird that was banded in 2015,
then recaught in 2016 but not in 2017)
Spotted Towhee 1 (a returning bird banded in 2016 and recaught in 2017)
Song Sparrow 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 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.)
