Tuesday May 8, 2018:  89 birds of 24 species, 18 retraps.  New species:  Magnolia Warbler.  Bird of the day was Ruby-crowned Kinglet with 21 new bands.

It was Anton Kvarnbäck’s was last day so we said good-bye before he headed back to Sweden.  We had a great visit, and we hope to we’ll see him again on the other side of the Atlantic one day!

We had 11 species of warblers today, and banded 4 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks besides!  Even though we had a good number of great birds, the day felt a little slow and lazy . . . and we’re eager to get a really big push of birds some time soon!
