IMG_4945 3Hot as in temperature, not lots of birds. We did end up with 34 new birds,15 different species and 13 recaptured birds. Thanks to the Thrush family adding 18 new to the total.

Andrea had some good birds, mature Grey Catbirds and Thrushes to show her Banding Training class. We also listened to Andrea explaining bird behavior to students from Geneseo Collage.

 

September 22, 2017 We banded 45 new birds of 15 species and there were ten recaps. Our bird of the day was Winter Wren! We banded ten of them. We also banded a Marsh Wren, which is always fun to see up close and personal. But the most amazing thing we saw today was not birds, but butterflies! The wild Asters in our fields are in full bloom and there were hundreds of Painted Lady butterflies everywhere. Monarchs were present also, but in smaller numbers. Cindy Marino, BIC

Wednesday, September 21, 2017. It was a “thrushy” day. Slow but enough to keep us entertained. What was more entertaining was watching a research student teach a class of seniors from Wayne Central Schools about her projects, including getting a bit of “poo” from a bird. We had bird runs with birds for them and Cindy explained the banding. We had a total of 33 new birds and 13 recaptures. Peggy Keller

September 19, 2017 25 new, 13 retraps, 10 species. Ryan, Andrea, and Gayle put the Alphabet nets up, since it was a slow day. But the highlight of the day was our 3rd Connecticut Warbler of the season! Bird of the day was Blackpoll Warbler. Ryan Kayhart

Wednesday, September 13, 2017. There are enough birds to keep us pretty happy with good weather. Was great to have Betsy and Ryan back to work with our Wednesday crew. The net runners and pickers brought back a total of 52 new birds and 13 recapture birds. Swainson’s Thrush had the winning total of 18 birds. The big excitement of the morning was a Connecticut warbler. Thanks for all the help to my pickers and scribes. A few poses of a great bird.

It was a “Veery busy day” with 6 Veerys plus 59 other new birds and 11 recaps. We had 22 species.   Thirteen of the 22  were warbler species.
New to the station this fall was a Northern Parula, Lincoln’s Sparrow,
and a Cape May warbler. Each net run brought in birds  which was great for our visitors.

Triple Black-throated Green Warblers!

Friday, September 1

It was the chilliest morning so far for the current Fall banding season and the first few net checks yielded only a few birds, but starting around hour two, that changed and we had decent numbers of birds to keep the banders and net pickers busy.

We banded 53 new birds and there were ten recaps. New species for the season was Nashville Warbler. There was a tie for bird of the day between Magnolia Warbler and Wilsons Warbler, with 7 each.
