Rainy Sunday at CLDC
On Sunday the 21st of June 2009 we opened the 3rd session of the CLDC MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship) banding station! Three hours of banding with thick fog we closed the nets due to light drizzle and strong winds. Within the three hours of operation we captured 5 different species and banded 2 newly banded birds with 7 recaptures (total of 9 individuals).
Highlights included the 2 recaptured Eastern Towhees, Gray Catbird, Song Sparrow, Common Yellowthroat and House Wren. Despite the fog, light drizzle and winds . . . . . we were having a good start to banding. Thanks to Young Naturalist J for being my Banding Assistant and Patty for also helping (and taking these photos)!
