Banding has been going steady for the previous two days. On Friday we had to close early due to heat and ended with 21 birds. Saturday was a bit cooler and cloudier, and it rained a little but not enough to close nets. It was also our public banding day, and with 30 birds, including a Yellow-breasted Chat, Western Tanager, and Red-naped Sapsucker we had plenty to show our visitors! As of Saturday we are up to 127 birds of 29 species.
I will be banding at Ridgway every day until this Friday the 13th. We have birds starting at around 0710, and probably close between 1040 and noon, depending on weather. If you want to see birds arrive before 9:30!
