Sunday April 28, 2019:  35 new birds of 8 species, 28 recaps.  No new species.  Bird of the day was Ruby-crowned Kinglet with 14 new bands.

Erin Karnatz is back in the house!  After taking time off to pursue a PhD in linguistics at SUNY Buffalo, Erin stepped back into the driver’s seat on Sunday as she filled in for Andrea who was away in Ohio.  Erin has been an important part of the station for more than 15 years, and we’re always excited when she is able to spare a morning away from her studies.

Weather played spoiler for most of the day, but we managed to get a few nets up for at least part of the morning.  Captures were typical for this time of year – kinglets and chickadees with a sparrow thrown in for good measure.
