Thursday October 16, 2014.  30 new birds of 12 species; 27 recaps.

Fog and light drizzle delayed our opening today. Migrants were apparently not moving much last night as almost half of the birds we processed today were recaps – mostly from prior days banding.

Most numerous species today was White-throated Sparrow with 9 new bands followed by Ruby Crowned Kinglet with 5 new bands and Hermit Thrush with 4 new bands.
