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!

Comments Off on 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.
