Saturday September 28, 2013:  86 new birds of 17 species, 17 recaps.  Birds of the day were White-throated Sparrow with 45 banded, and Gray-cheeked Thrush with 7 banded.  The bander training class ran the station today, and they did a fabulous job!  Since there were six students, they each took a turn being the Bander-in-Charge for an hour.  In addition to the regular duties of net-picking and banding, they were also responsible for taking the weather, calculating the net-hours, and compiling the tally.  They were further challenged by a fantastic group of students from Hobart and William Smith, who were visiting for the morning.   The day went off without a hitch, so kudos to the class!  Since this was their last day, they took their final exam in the afternoon before we all said our goodbyes.
