Wilson's Warblers appear to be on the move - I see Chico banded 26 and we did 30. In between, we caught 12 other new birds, included our FOS Green-tailed Towhee and Lincoln's Sparrow and a Black-capped Chickadee banded last year. Here's the breakdown of the 42 new birds:
We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through October 13. We are opening nets at 6:40 and should have birds back at the station by 7:20. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we will likely close earlier some days as long as this heat continues. School groups arrive most weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.
