Wednesday May 9th we had 71 new bandings and we had 10 Recaps. We also banded Six new species for the season. The most exciting bird of the day was an Eastern bluebird. Although Eastern bluebird is a fairly common species in New York state, we almost never band them at Braddock Bay bird Observatory. Other new species included Hooded warbler, Mourning warbler, Lincoln Sparrow, Baltimore Oriole, and Wilson’s warbler.
