Our third day of banding started off fairly slow with overcast, somewhat humid weather. Once the clouds picked up, so did the birding activity, though that was a little short-lived as the breezy late morning caused some early net closures.
We ended with 23 birds banded today. It seemed to be a relatively busier day for the resident and local breeder species than for migrants, but there was some good variety, with 14 total species.
Among the more unique captures were a female Orchard Oriole (the 12th fall record for Chico and only the 3rd since 2011) and a Canyon Towhee (only the 3rd-ever record here).
