Thursday September 26, 2013:  204 birds of 27 species, 17 recaps.  Bird of the day was White-throated Sparrow with 77 banded.  Golden-crowned Kinglet was a distant second, with 25 new bands.  Thrushes and sparrows are starting to replace warblers as the most common birds, and kinglet numbers are starting to build as well.  Fall is upon us!

The class continued net-picking and processing birds.  They are holding up pretty well under the early mornings and long days, and are doing quite well with the material.  They took their mid-term exam today, and then we all gathered for lasagna at the BBBO house.
