Wednesday April 22, 2015. It was damp and chilly, with very few birds banded, but it was good to be back at BBBO, and a slow start was good for the Wednesday crew to get back in the swing of things.  Rain threatened but did not materialize,  so we were able to run the full six hours with all nets opened.  We banded 14 new birds including a Hermit Thrush and a Blue-headed Vireo, the latter being a new species for the season.  Swamp Sparrow and Common Grackle were also new for the season.  We had 13 recaps.
