Monday October 12, 2015.  43 new birds of 8 species; 35 recaps.  New species Fox Sparrow.

A beautiful adult Fox Sparrow was the bird of the day, our first of the season.

We banded 21 Ruby-crowned Kinglets and picked quite a few leaves out of the nets!

We especially enjoyed having Quinn spend the day with us.  Quinn brought his shovel and dump truck and helped move some mulch to the wet paths, and then enjoyed skipping stones down by the lake.
