Howdy all, Since the banding station has been rained out the past two days, I have been able to get a little caught up! Last weekend was the birding festival here and it was very busy. And so were the birds Sunday! We ended up banding 246 individuals Sunday! A fun day for all! Since Sunday, bird numbers have been a little slow. But a few nice birds were caught to help in the quality department. With a cold front looming, we are looking to have a pretty nice day for bird numbers Monday. At least we hope! We are expecting a large number of Yellow-rumps to be in the mix. Those guys should give us a pretty busy day. The birds listed below are from the time period 10/6 to 10/10. We were rained out on the 10/11 and 10/12. More than half the birds listed came from Sunday the 6th alone! Cheers, Jethro Runco Head Songbird Bander WARBLERS A.
