Had a great weekend at Tygart Lake banding and birding.
Tallied almost 60 species, including 12 warbler species.
Banded 5 American Redstarts, 2 Yellow Warblers, a Nashville Warbler, a Swainson's Thrush,
5 Gray Catbirds, a Red-eyed Vireo, and a handsome Brown Thrasher.
All this just around the lodge area!
We also had 12 Forsters Terns on the lake with a couple Ring-billed Gulls and a Herring Gull.
2 Osprey fly bys along with nesting Barn Swallows and Eastern Phoebes.
