Summer MAPS banding started out at High Acres Nature Reserve with 26 newly banded birds and 12 recaptures. There was a good mix of birds of 13 different species including several Carolina Wrens and bright Yellow Warblers.

The highlight of the day came during the final net run; a surprise tree swallow! This species had never been banded at HANA before, although they are seen all over the site.

Thank you to the seven volunteers who came out to help for the first session, the help was greatly appreciated!
