Tuesday, August 26:  15 birds of 8 species, 4 recaps.  New species:  Lincoln’s Sparrow. Birds of the day were Red-eyed Vireo and Gray Catbird, each with 4 new bands.  28 species were detected on site today.

Warmer temperatures and winds out of the west/southwest combined to suppress bird counts, with the meadow nets closed near the end of the session due to the warm temperatures.

Barb French observantly pointed out kettles of Turkey Vultures that were forming, along with detecting Red-tailed and Broad-winged Hawks along with 14 Bald Eagles (including several immature Bald Eagles. The Evans stopped by with their two grandchildren to say hello, and Emily Johnson from the Genesee Land Trust came out to visit and to also meet with the landscaper and assess the alder control efforts.

Thank you to Gayle, Pat, Barb, Tom, Judy, and Meghan for their efforts!
