August 18 - 31

Chestnut-sided Warbler


The end of August was hot and humid, not exactly prompting the birds to get moving. Diversity and numbers did start to increase by the end of the month, but migration came in trickles rather than waves.

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were passing through on the 30th and 31st, and several flew into the nets. We don't band hummingbirds however, as they require a special permit and a unique type of band that fits their delicate legs. Hummingbirds must be handled very delicately, and only those personnel with experience are permitted to extract them from nets.
