Tuesday April 25, 2017:  19 new birds of 2 species; 7 retraps.  No new species.  Bird of the day was Black-capped Chickadee with 14 banded.

We had radar on first thing in morning. Rain was approaching from the south.  We thought we had until 11am but we were wrong . We got in 2 hour worth of banding before it came. Most of crew wore Hawaiian shirts in honor of Ryan’s last Tuesday as bander in charge!  — Ryan Kayhart
