High Acres Nature Area – July 3, 2015

Another hardworking crew of volunteers at High Acres Nature Area (HANA) had a very good MAPS banding session at on Friday, July 3rd. Twenty nine new birds of 12 species were banded and eight recaptured birds were processed. The Gray Catbird was the bird du jour, with 9 banded. Hatch year Yellow Warblers were also common (five new birds). Of special interest were an Eastern Wood Pewee and a Brown Thrasher (see photo). The volunteers were Aggie Windig, Jim Saller, and Gayle Lazoration.
