Wednesday October 10, 2012.  44 new of 10 species; 22 retraps.   We were able to operate for five hours before the showers moved in and closed us down.  Before that, the net pickers were kept busy clearing leaves from the nets.  Birds of the day was White-throated Sparrow with 13 banded and Golden-crowned Kinglet with 11 banded.
