Thursday October 2, 2014. 72 new birds of 18 species; 21 recaps.

Bird of the day was White-throated Sparrow with 22 new bands. There was a tie for second place with 6 new bands each: Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Swainson’s Thrush, and Gray Catbird.

Highlight of the day was a Blue-headed Vireo, a bird we only catch a few of each fall.

Ann and Allen Nash brought friends to see the banding today.  Both Stephanie and Meghan were able to get enough birds to test for their research.
