Friday October 16, 2015.  42 new bandings of 14 species; 29 recaps.

The day started out cold and gray, but the showers stayed just east of us on the lakefront.   By 11 AM, the day turned sunny and dry.

Bird of the day was Ruby-crowned Kinglet with 17 banded.

A Blue Jay banded by Sonya Rooney here as a hatching year bird on October 11, 2013 was recaptured and released today.

The fall 2015 season ended today for Ryan and Betsy, but banding will continue here until at least October 30.
