Fall Banding Comments Off on Super Fat Blackpolls!
We had a busy day today at BBBO. We banded 76 new birds and we had many recaps, 73 to be exact! Again, the bird of the day was Blackpoll Warbler, with 26 new bands and the majority of the recaps were Blackpolls also. Several of the Blackpolls were super fat. The fattest one weighed in at 20.8 grams and was originally banded a couple weeks ago.
Runner up for bird of the day was White-throated Sparrow, with 8 new bands.
