It was a pretty slow day and the big numbers of chickadees that were in the area earlier this week, slowed way down to just a few, and all of them were retraps. We actually processed 33 retraps and only banded 19 new birds.
Bird of the day was Ruby Crowned Kinglet, with 15 new bands. Other new birds included Song Sparrow, Blue Gray Gnatcatcher, and BrownHeaded Cowbird. Our only new species for the day was a very pretty Western Palm Warbler.
