Monday September 2, 2013.  It was a day where it looked like it was to rain all day, but we kept radar on, and all we got at the station were a few sprinkles and gorgeous skies. We got 27 new birds and 6 recaptures. There were no new add ons as species for the fall.   I spent as much time as I could to help Willie, Meghan (summer student) and Terry with learning how to take birds out of nets.

In between net checks Shirley had a game on iPhone  and we all played.
The highlight was a HY feast your eyes male Blackburnian Warbler!
