Thursday September 18, 2014.   25 new bands on 11 species; 15 recaptures processed. Birds of the day with four new bands each were Magnolia Warbler, Blackpoll Warbler, and Swainson’s Thrush.

 

The day was rather slow and uneventfull. It was overcast and cool. We had to close nets for an hour while a band of intermittent showers passed through at hour 2.5 and then a second band of showers just offshore produced a light rain as we were closing nets at hour 6.

 

Ryan and Betsy set up the alphabet nets, an area used just in the fall.
