Between a late start due to the overnight storm and an early close as the rain threatened, we enjoyed a variety of spring birds with the Tuesday Birders. Highlight was a female Chestnut-sided Warbler, caught in the last run of the morning. 33 new birds:
This is our last week; we will take down the station after banding on Friday. We have organized groups coming our early Wednesday and Thursday but no school groups later in the morning. We are opening nets at 6:30, and most days have birds back at the station by 7:15. We aim to close by noon most days, earlier if it is very hot, very cold, or very windy.
Come visit during our last week!
