We recaptured a female Northern Cardinal that was banded in October. She was just packed with fat. Nest building, egg laying, and brooding are all energy intensive things. She's getting ready to nest as there was no sign of a current brood patch so she is not on eggs yet.
In addition the the vireos, we had a Summer Tanager on the property today.
Pat got pictures of the Yellow-throated Vireo as well as a White-eyed. Three Vireo species on the property today.
Next banding: March 11, nets up at 6:30. Yes, I know there's a time change but there's also more day length. It will be darker at the start but maybe we'll get a few more early captures.
NEW START TIME: 7:15 ignore above start time
