Monday October 15, 2012. 28 new and 17 recaps. We had a small crew and Gary was very busy walking the line looking for birds. Jane was scribing and Katie and I banding. The winds were such that aerials might have taken off so we opened only 50s and 90s, which are protected from the wind. Jenna arrived, but we closed at hour 5 due to rain. Hermit Thrush came in as a winner with 9 birds and 2nd place went to the Golden-crowned Kinglet at 6 birds.
