The data successfully sent to the National Audubon Society. Thank you for a great bird banding season. See you in October.
We had a total of 15 birds but we did have an interesting variety. At one point in the morning, we had a Veery and a Swainson’s Thrush at the same time. It allowed us to compared them side by side including taking photos. I really like the cinnamon brown back and indistinct spotting on the Veery. Also, there is a significant size difference between them that you can really appreciate in comparison.
We had a number of visitors again come in the hopes of seeing some cool migrants but the weather did not cooperate. It is very weather dependent and we hope the fronts come through a day or two before we are banding on Sunday mornings.
I will have a Spring banding summary posted very soon.
