Numbers are down early this week, with 20 birds on Monday, 17 birds on Tuesday, and 20 birds again today. Fortunately we got some good birds, including a Clay-colored Sparrow and Northern Waterthrush. Also, at 12 Virginia's Warblers so far for the season, we are close to exceeding the total number of this species ever banded in Ridgway (16). Numbers for the last three days are as follows
Visitors are welcome - Friday is the last day of banding here at Ridgway, after which I will be moving to the banding station in Grand Junction. We get our first birds at around 7:20 and usually close at around 11:00 due to sun or wind. However, bird numbers drop off drastically after 9:00, so arrive early!
