October highlights...

As we head into the middle of October, the numbers of birds passing through TTPBRS this fall has been impressive to say the least!
We have banded over 3500 birds so far, with both species of kinglets dominating the numbers.
We are attempting a few hours of owl banding each morning and have banded 9 Northern  saw-whet owls so far, and this rather impressive young Barred owl.
If the second half of October is anything like the first, I could see the station banding over 4000 birds for the fall season..... fingers crossed!
