Cool, Damp, Cloudy, and SE winds at Clear Spring Ranch at dawn. Oh Boy! Things were moving early, and I banded 30 birds by 7:30, but then it went dead. Ok, that was a good morning!, So as I go to close at 10:00 another wave of migrants arrived, and I did non-stop banding until12:30! 85 birds total today. Highlights:
