Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Ridgway State Park, 9/9/19-9/11/19
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

Virginia's Warbler 6
Wilson's Warbler 18
Orange-crowned Warbler 8
House Wren 2
Yellow Warbler 5
Chipping Sparrow 2
Western Wood-pewee 2
Clay-colored Sparrow 1 (FOS)
MacGillivray's Warbler 3
Western Tanager 1
Gray Catbird 3
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
Northern Waterthrush 1 (FOS)
Cassin's Vireo 1 (FOS)
Song Sparrow 1
Red-naped Sapsucker 1

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!
