Monday September 28, 2015.  21 new bands of 8 species; 20 retraps.

The catch of the day was a feisty Yellow-shafted Flicker.  We banded 8 White-throated Sparrows and 5 Blackpoll Warblers, with just a few nets set up while we watched the showers dwindle and finally leave the area.  At that point we raised almost all our nets.

Sometimes, the insects get our attention!

Andrea and Betsy worked to get things ready for next weekend’s NABC Certification session.  We took down the nets the BTC students had put up, and Ryan set up the owl nets, so we are ready for the first really crisp, fall-like evening!
