Wednesday May 27, 2015.  137 new of 25 species; 12 retraps.  Downy Woodpecker was a new species.  Bird of the day was Traill’s Flycatcher with 31 banded.  Four Indigo Buntings were a treat.

In the evening, we held our annual picnic for volunteers, with everything delicious – from salads and casseroles to fresh rhubarb pies and cheesecake.
