SWAT Banding Day 1
Friday morning we had our first day of banding at the SWAT MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship) banding station. We were able to band 24 species of birds and 47 newly banded individuals (with 8 recaptured birds). We had many banding assistants helping this session which were very much needed with all these great birds! Thanks again for their help everyone!
The warblers we caught included the Chestnut-sided Warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, and Yellow Warbler. Other highlights were the 10 Cedar Waxwings, Yellow-shafted Flicker, Brown Thrasher, Red-eyed Vireo, Wood Thrush, Baltimore Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and my favorite . . . . Warbling Vireo (first for the station)!
