A lifer in the hand always makes for a great day of banding! Today we had 130 newly banded birds with 15 recaptures across 17 species. Our captures and species diversity are increasing slowly but surely. In the past three banding days, accumulatively, we have captured and banded 337 birds! Not too bad considering nets have been closed for a few days due to inclement weather.
