Tuesday October 20, 2015:  20 new birds of 7 species, 23 recaps.  Bird of the day was Ruby-crowned Kinglet with 7 new bands.  We weren’t expecting much today given the strong winds that blew from the SW all night and through the morning, so we were actually delighted to see as many birds as we did!  Most of our catch was kinglets (13 of 20 new birds).  It was interesting that we caught no new sparrows today.  We recaptured four White-throated Sparrows, but there are again clearly very few “new”  birds foraging in our woods.  On a happier note – a lot of the leaves seemed to come down yesterday, because we weren’t overwhelmed with leaves in our nets today!
