Sunday April 23, 2017:  52 new birds of 5 species, 29 recaps.  New species:  American Goldfinch.  Bird of the day was Black-capped Chickadee with 45 new bands.  Our Sunday crew is back together!  Leanna was back after missing last fall (as a dedicated mom, she often has to chauffeur her boys to soccer, swimming, and probably a million other activities), and she joined Erin and Barb who rounded out the “old reliables.”  Erin has been bringing her daughter Delaney, and we were joined by teen bander Katie.  The chickadees were a challenge, but the sunshine made us all happy to be outside and we had a great time catching up with each other after a long winter.
