We did remove creatures from the nets - a dragonfly and two cicadas.
Birds noted were two Great Crested Flycatchers that were still on the property after breeding season or were just passing through on their way south. We heard a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. This could have been a nearby breeding bird. We also saw two American Redstarts. Both were yellow so they were females or young males. They would definitely be new arrivals.
At least one of the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron adults is still on the property. We also saw one of the Wild Turkeys. Neighbors told us they had seen chicks. Not sure we want a flock of these heading for the nets.
We are beginning to hear of returning Painted Buntings. Watch for updates on the Color Banding Painted Buntings page. Look in the upper right corner for the page listings.
Next session will be Tuesday, August 26 with nets going up at 6:30 am. Please feel free to visit. Make sure you check at the end of the property on Hibiscus as we frequently park there.
