Wednesday April 29, 2015  36 new bands of 13 species; 3 retraps.  New species Red-winged Blackbird.

We had a milder day with a little more bird movement.  Bird of the day was Ruby-crowned Kinglet with 18 banded.

There were swarms of gnats again today as the air temperature warmed up, and we had three Blue-gray Gnatcatchers hanging around the station most of the morning.

We had quite a few visitors who enjoyed the sunshine and seeing birds close up.

Kyle was busy all morning sprucing up the net lanes in preparation for the many visitors from Cornell’s Spring Field Ornithology class scheduled for the weekend.
