Today was record breaking - we banded 26 birds and all of them were warblers. There were 11 species noted on the property and we managed to catch 7 of them.
First it was a run of Ovenbirds. We eventually banded 8. The second photo shows the lighter tips indicating a bird that was born last year.
(UPDATE 4/22: It seemed about half of the birds had moved between yesterday and today but we still had a good day. We banded 3 American Redstarts, 4 Black-throated Blue Warblers, 1 Common Yellowthroat, and 4 Ovenbirds. That would usually be a great day. We also noted 2 migrants on the property that we had not seen yet this season - A Scarlet Tanager and a Red-eyed Vireo. Also present was a Black-throated Green Warbler, bringing the two day warbler total to 12.
