Tuesday September 17, 2013  It was a nice cool and sunny Tuesday, quite a change from last Tuesday, when it was ninety degrees. We banded 47 new birds, with Swainsons Thrush being most numerous with a total of 8. Gray cheeked Thrush was close behind, with 7 banded. A Gray Catbird was banded that had two leucistic talons.
