Friday September 27, 2013.  135 new of 23 species; 37 recaps.  It was another good day, but the number of recaps told the story.  On our 242-bird day on Wednesday, there were just 4 recaps.  Today, there were 37, which meant more birds were staying around the area and fewer moving in.  Birds of the day were Ruby-crowned Kinglet with 29 banded and White-throated Sparrow with 21 banded,

We banded seven warbler species including a Northern Parula.

The Bander Training Class continued to work at the banding table.  They also learned how to remove bands safely and Sue Smith Pagano gave a workshop on how to bleed birds for research projects.
