We continue to be down in numbers but up in number of species each day.  We banded 8 warbler species including another Connecticut Warbler.  Bird of the day was Swainson’s Thrush with six banded.

Marilyn Guenther and John Boettcher installed shades for the windows in our Education Room, so we could have a darker room for our slide presentations.  Peggy Keller is scheduled to give a slide show at noon on Wednesday October 7 on her trips to film tigers in India.  Everyone is welcome.  Bring your lunch … coffee and tea will be provided.

The Bander Training Class students are learning the complexities of molt.
