June 14, 2014 Despite an overcast and chilly morning, another successful MAPS session was completed at High Acres. We banded 27 new birds and had 16 recaptures for a total of 43 birds of 15 species. Birds have begun fledging, both a Wood Thrush and Yellow Warbler fledgling were banded.
Similar to last week, the bird of the day came on the closing net run … an ATY Northern Flicker!
The first American Redstarts were also banded and gave us a nice comparison between SY and ASY male Redstarts.
We had another good turnout of volunteers including many RIT alumni.
