Wednesday, May 24, 2017 104 new birds of 26 species; 12 recaps.  New species Golden-winged Warbler.

It was a good morning of late season banding. A steady but not overwhelming flow of birds for the whole time.
Flycatcher season has definitely begun, as we banded quite a few Traill’s Flycatchers, as well as a couple Least Flycatchers and a Yellow-bellied as well.  Other birds included good numbers of Magnolia, American Redstart and Yellow Warblers. Mourning Warbler and a female Golden Winged Warbler were special treats!
Two homeschooling families paid us a visit and it was great to see their enthusiasm for both the birds and several snakes that they spotted.
