Wednesday September 28, 2016.
We banded 106 new birds.  Bird of the day was Blackpoll Warbler , with 51 new bands.
There were 35 recaps.
We had a visit from great group of students from SUNY Geneseo, along with their professor Kristi Hannam.

Other visitors included Dr. Drew Lanham, ornithologist and author from Clemson University, and  RBA president, Laura Kammermeier.

Researcher Elliot Johnston tested 54 birds in the MARS lab, 44 of which were Blackpolls.

In the evening, we set up for owls, but had no luck in catching any.  But a large crowd enjoyed cake and ice-cream  to honor Jenna Holschuh, who received her Master Banding Permit earlier this month, and Ryan Kayhart, who is celebrating his tenth year of serving first as intern, and then Field Assistant, and then Research Assistant.
