Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/29/18
Hard to adjust to this cold weather after such a warm month! My fingers
were freezing during the first hour or so, but my great team of Saturday
volunteers got the early birds - mostly warblers and kinglets - in and out
in record time. 38 new birds plus another 21 recaps made for a busy
morning, which we shared with Hugh and Urling's Beginning Birder class from
Denver Audubon. Breakdown of the 38 new birds:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 5
Orange-crowned Warbler 9
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 7
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle 1
Wilson's Warbler 4
Chipping Sparrow 1
Song Sparrow 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 7

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:50 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:30. We will close most days by about 11:30. School groups
arrive most weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people,
most birds) is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!
