foreign Recovery-Ruby-crowned Kinglet

I have just received word on our 7th foreign recovery. The HY Male Ruby-crowned Kinglet (2310-75634) banded at TTPBRS on October 10-2003 was recaptured at Rouge River Bird Observatory (RRBO), Dearborn, Michigan on April 22-2005. Interestingly, Rouge River Bird Observatory is another of just a handful or urban based migration monitoring stations in North America.
 
According to Canadian banding records this is just the 11th recovery from over 48,000 banded since 1921. Furthermore the Canadian Atlas of Bird Banding states that "This species has one of the lowest encounter rates of any bird".
