Monday October 6, 2014.  30 new bands of 13 species; 27 retraps.

We had radar on all morning and managed to avoid any rain heavier than a sprinkle here and there.  We closed the alphabet nets after just an hour because of wind and the worry about showers.

It was mostly ones and twos of a nice assortment of species including a Northern Parula, beautiful male Black-throated Blue Warbler, a Magnolia and a Blackpoll Warbler.

Bird of the day was White-throated Sparrow with 10 banded.
