Friday April 20, 2012. 126 new birds banded of 13 species. New species for the year is Myrtle Warbler. The majority of birds banded were Ruby-crowned Kinglets, with a total of 71. There were also good numbers of Hermit Thrush and White-throated Sparrow. We closed the aerial nets at hour 2.5 because there were so many kinglets. Those nets were reopened at hour 4. Many Red Admiral butterflies continue to grace the paths and net lanes but they seem to be very good at avoiding the nets, thank goodness!  Cindy Marino
