37 birds of 18 species, 9 recaps.  No new species.  Bird of the day was American Redstart, with 8 new bands.  It was a fairly routine day up at BBBO – we aren’t getting birds in large numbers yet, but our species diversity is high enough to keep our banders paging through Pyle.  How much black can a young female Wilson’s Warbler have?  How do you tell the difference between a male and female hatch year Myrtle Warbler?  What is the difference between a Tennessee and an Orange-crowned Warbler in the fall?  It’s actually nice to have some slow days at the start of the season to refresh your memory and sharpen your skills before you get swamped!  We are at 964 birds for the fall season – we should get to 1000 on Friday or Saturday.  Not bad, considering we haven’t had any northerly winds yet!
