Kinglets and Waiting

Nothing too exciting. Robins were overhead all morning but not much else was moving with the higher winds. We did enjoy a new Hermit Thrush caught early in the day.

Abe got the main banding duties today and got to use the main books for aging.

The most exciting moment was capturing 4 Ruby-crowned Kinglets at the same time near the lake. Grace got to release one of them after it was banded.

We also got a new male Cardinal for the day. Twig at the ready!

We also got a recaptured Brown Thrasher. Nice to have the data,

Weather should be clearing well for the next week's banding effort.
Next Banding Day: Sunday, January 16th.

All nets will be opened by 6:50 A.M.
