We banded 4 Gray Catbirds, 5 Black-throated Blue Warblers, 1 Downy Woodpecker, and 1 Ovenbird. We also recaptured a Painted Bunting from over a year ago (3/26/13). This one was banded before we started color banding. We can now say that this green Painted Bunting is female; a male would have molted to his bright colors in the intervening year.
The Black-throated Blue Warblers were very interesting. The backs of 3 of them showed the black centers that indicate they are the Appalachian subspecies. The other two had all blue backs.
