Saturday June 13, 2015.  26 new birds and 13 retraps.

The crew started with Ryan, Henry, Becky, and BIC Brendan.  We had everything set up on time (around 5:30 AM).  Lisa and Ethan came to help out.

The bird of the day was Yellow Warbler with 8 banded!

It was a nice day with very little wind.

Becky brought muffins and two types of cookies – Chocolate Chocolate Chip and regular Chocolate Chip!

Henry banded his first bird of the season … the third Red-eyed Vireo banded –  and the bird I poached last summer!

So far this season, Brendan, Henry, Becky and I have perfect attendance.  Missing today was Mr. Olsen and Claire Trombley.  Claire will be BIC on our next banding session which will be Tuesday June 23, 2015 (rain date Monday June 29).
