Kinglet is king
The team at the TTP Bird Research Station are seeing good migration numbers, despite the wet weather. On October 3, 195 birds were banded, with Kinglets taking over the total. Monitoring resumed on October 8, with a staggering 300 birds banded - 67% of the total were Kinglets.
If you're out bird watching this long weekend, watch for the tiny Golden-crowned Kinglet plucking small insects from clusters of needles, high up in conifer trees.
