Monday April 22, 2013.  We banded 51 new birds today and more than half of them were chickadees, 31 to be exact. There were 23 recaps. New species for today was Common Grackle, with three banded. Most interesting captures were two Field Sparrows which we were able to compare side by side. One was quite a bit more brightly colored than the other .   Thanks to Mike, Katie, Jenna, Chita, and Jane for the efficient banding, net picking and scribing.   Cindy Marino
