Friday September 19, 2014.  50 new birds banded of 20 species; 19 recaps.  New species Dark-eyed Junco.

Bird of the day was Magnolia Warbler with 9 banded but there were another 10 warbler species banded today.

 

Three Yellow-shafted Flickers on the final net run of the day were a noisy handful for our only guests of the day to see banded.

 

The Town of Greece delivered another truck-load of mulch and Allen was there to begin filling the wheelbarrow with welcome mulch for our trails.

Betsy and Ryan set up the first nets of our traditional fall “extra” nets on the alphabet trail behind the main banding lanes.  We immediately caught several thrushes there which is one reason we set them up each fall.  Thrushes and White-throats like the cool shady lane.
