Friday September 12, 2014  16 new bands of 14 species; 16 recaps.  New species Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Purple Finch.

The radar showed considerable bird movement at dawn through the Niagara corridor,  but we were disappointed at Braddock Bay.  We had variety (16 species) but just ones and twos of each.

Marilyn and Tom K spent part of the morning weeding the gardens at the house.
