Monday June 2, 2014:  66 new birds.  Bird of the day was Traill’s Flycatcher, with 18 new bands.

We have been hearing and catching Black-billed Cuckoos over the past week, but today we got a big surprise with a Yellow-billed Cuckoo as well!

The migration season is winding down, as we are seeing more and more locally breeding birds and birds in breeding condition.  We haven’t had any juveniles yet, but we should start seeing them at our MAPS stations in the next week or two.
