Thursday May 10, 2012.  66 new of 21 species; 14 recaps.  A sharp NW wind stopped the migration and blowing nets made it harder to catch birds.  Still, we had a good morning and some nice farewell birds, including a late Blue-gray Gnatcatcher for the last day of the visit of the Vermont students.  Western Palm Warbler was again the bird of the day with 14 banded along with 8 other warbler species.  Ryan measured and examined three Ruby-throated Hummingbirds bringing his total to 21 hummingbirds processed (but not banded).  After the traditional group picture in our DOS 2012 T-shirts, the bus left for the drive back to Middlebury.  We finished the morning with four feisty Blue Jays, making a total of nine for the morning.    Betsy Brooks
