Wednesday September 26 2012.  147 new of 25 species; 60 recaps.  New species Tufted Titmouse.  We had another great day of banding with 50 White-throated Sparrows and 24 Blackpoll Warblers banded.  A pair of Tufted Titmice caused some excitement and we managed to band eight warbler species, including a handsome AHY male Black-throated Blue Warbler.

We have now set an all-time record for number of Swainson’s Thrush banded… 253 banded this fall and counting!  Betsy Brooks
