Tuesday May 27, 2014.  155 new bands of 26 species; 21 retraps.  New species Black-billed Cuckoo and Gray-cheeked/Bicknell’s Thrush.  Birds of the day were 28 American Redstarts,18 Magnolia Warblers, 16 Traill’s Flycatchers, and 15 Wilson’s Warblers.

Several Black-billed Cuckoos were singing in the area this morning and we finally caught one in the back aerial nets.  But the Olive-sided Flycatcher heard singing on the property yesterday evening managed to elude our nets today.

We banded 14 warblers species today – a nice variety for so late in the season.  But,  we have not banded a single Blackburnian Warbler so far this spring.
