Saturday June 6, 2015:  12 new birds of 7 species, 13 recaps.  Bird of the day was Gray Catbird with 4 new bands.

The season let us know it over today, by giving us only a handful of new birds – almost all of which are locally breeding species.  Despite the lack of birds, the crew had a pleasant morning – chatting, drinking coffee, and sitting outside in the sunshine.

Unofficially, we ended the season with 4,118 birds of 88 species, and 626 recaptures.  Notable birds included a Pileated Woodpecker and a Prothonotary Warbler.  A noticeable absence was Baltimore Oriole.  While we recaptured several from previous seasons, we did not band any new orioles.  While the season started off slowly, we had several amazing 200+ days, and we ended the season about 300 birds better than last year.

Thanks to everyone who made this season possible, from our regular crew of daily volunteers, to our slightly irregular crew of mowers, trimmers and menders, to our all important members and donors.  BBBO needs you all, and we appreciate everything you do!

See you all in August!
