First Day of SWAT
On Friday the 29th of May 2009 we opened the SWAT MAPS banding station! We captured 12 different species and banded 22 newly banded birds with 10 recaptures. I wouldn’t have called this a good banding day but turned out better than how we first expected it to turn out like!
Highlights included the captured of 1 Red-eyed Vireo, 2 Chestnut-sided Warblers and 3 Yellow Warblers! First bird in the net was a House Wren and if you know anything about wrens . . . this sneaky bird got away from us! Overall, even with some light rain showers . . . we were able to still have a great day!
Thanks to my field assistants: Young Naturalist J, Young Naturalist C and Jennifer Schlick for helping on Friday.
