1st day of autumn !

As we near the end of September, we found the month has been rather slow!
At the end of August we had banded over 1000 birds, as the end of September draws closer we stand at under 700. The summer-like weather slowed down the migration, somedays to a crawl!.
As we move into fall, the sparrows, thrushs and kinglets will dominate the daily totals, and our numbers will climb.
We are operating out of the new lab, so if you haven't already stopped by, please do so.
