Monday April 27, 2015.  We had 27 new birds banded of 8 species.  There are 14 recaps, one of them the gorgeous Yellow Palm Warbler banded yesterday (a treat for Betsy’s first day back!).  Bird of the day was Black-capped Chickadee with 18 banded.

We kept radar on all morning and dodged all the showers in the area.

We welcomed our Spring 2015 Field Assistant, Kyle Kennedy, currently from South Dakota where he received his M.S. in Integrative Genomics in 2012.  He was a Teaching Assistant at Drake University and also at the University of Minnesota Biological Research Station.

It was good to have the Monday crew back together again!
