Wednesday May 20, 2015.  44 new bands of 18 species; 15 retraps.  New species Mourning Dove.

With chilly temperatures and a fairly brisk wind, we waited to set up the back aerial nets.  We banded ten warbler species, but the bird of the day was (again) Magnolia Warbler with 8 banded.

Ryan banded 4 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and also planted two lilac bushes near the Memorial Garden.

The BTC students began preparations for running the banding station tomorrow.
