August is typically slow at a migration station, but we have lots of local breeders at TTP to keep us busy until the migrants arrive in droves. With a high system sitting over us, the weather has allowed for a few migrant passerines to trickle through. Here are some of the species recently banded:
|Adult male Cedar Waxwing|
|Hatch year Killdeer|
|Hatch year Lesser Yellowlegs|
|Hatch year male Belted Kingfisher|
|Hatch year Yellow Warbler|
Remember Leslie St is closed south of Commissioner's, so you will have to take Cherry St to Unwin, and Unwin over to the Park gates.
