And then there were hundreds!

Both species of kinglet and White-throated Sparrows were everywhere today as we banded 158 birds from 33.5 net hours for a capture rate of 4.4 birds/net hour! Blue-headed Vireo, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, White-crowned Sparrow, Nashville Warbler, Black-throated Blue and Black-throated Green Warbler and Brown Creeper were also abundant. Nothing unusual turned up today although we did band the first Scarlet Tanager of the fall as well as an Orange-crowned Warbler and another Sharp-shinned Hawk.
