Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Ridgway State Park, 9/3/19-9/5/19
We started banding at Ridgway on Tuesday, and it's been pretty steady with
22 birds on Tuesday, 28 birds on Wednesday, and 26 birds on Thursday. We
have opened at 0630 every day, but unfortunately the sun has caused us to
close early as well, usually around 1130. So far we have 76 birds of 24
species. Notably, Wilson's Warblers, who were the most abundantly banded
bird last season, are so far being overtaken by Yellow Warblers. Banding
totals for the past three days are as follows:

Wilson's Warbler 8
Orange-crowned Warbler 4
Yellow Warbler 20
Common Yellowthroat 1
House Wren 5
Nashville Warbler 2
Black-capped Chickadee 5
Lazuli Bunting 2
Hermit Thrush 1
Gray Catbird 6
Western Wood-pewee 1
Warbling Vireo 2
Red-breasted Nuthatch 1
MacGillivray's Warbler 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
Song Sparrow 5
Western Tanager 1
Virginia's Warbler 2
Black-throated Gray Warbler 1
Mountain Chickadee 1
Green-tailed Towhee 1
White-crowned Sparrow 1
American Robin 1

We are out here 5 days a week, M-F until 9/13/19. Also, this Saturday is
our public banding day, and all visitors are welcome! Be sure to arrive
early, as we catch very few birds after about 9:30. Bring bug spray!
