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 
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!
