Saturday July 26 2014

Saturday started out overcast and chilly but the sun was out and hot by the time we closed. The morning was quiet with very little singing going on this late in the season. A total of 20 new birds and 8 recaptures of 13 species were banded.

In addition, we added four new species to the season total: Baltimore Oriole, Black-capped Chickadee, American Goldfinch

This brought us up to 27 species for the season. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help!
