Notes from the lab....

It has been very busy at the research station the past two days, especially for August. In fact, the 73 birds banded yesterday and 63 today are the highest single-day banding totals for August in our 3 years at the site. American Redstart, Magnolia, Black-and-white and Myrtle Warbler have been particularly abundant. Good numbers of flycatchers, Veery and Swainson's Thrush were also observed. The unusually high density of migrants is attributable to cool temperatures and north winds.
