Wednesday June 3, 2015.  18 new bands; 6 retraps.

We had an uneventful and pretty slow day!  The most interesting bird was a Swainson’s Thrush with a fat score of 5!   He weighed 41.4 grams.  Other Swainson’s Thrushes we banded weighed in the last couple of weeks weighed in the low 30’s.  With a wing chord of 101, he was definitely a male too.

Other birds banded included a few catbirds, American Redstart, Yellow Warbler, a Northern Waterthrush and a handsome male Red-winged Blackbird.
