5/5/10 – Bircraft Banding

James Orrico and I joined Kathy, Judy and Judy for a fantastic morning of birding and banding at the Birdcraft. We were able to band 9 species in total including the following:

2 Nashville Warblers

7 Gray Catbirds

1 American Redstart

1 Common Yellowthroat

1 Common Grackle

1 Black-throated Green Warbler

2 Northern Waterthrush

1 Black-throated Blue Warbler

1 Ovenbird

Gray Catbird was definitely the most common bird banded and seen throughout the sanctuary. Again, this morning it was the high trail with much of the activity. Here are a few photos:

Tomorrow, I’ll be receiving my 6th and hopefully last surgery of the treatment so there may be a little lull in posts over the weekend.

    Hi Alex,

    I know that today is your surgery and I am thinking about you and wishing you the very best outcome. Will miss your blogs for a while and look forward to you resuming them. I had a class out birding last week and we had both a turkey vulture and black vulture in the sky at once – this was a beginning group so it was a special treat! Marcy

    Hi Marcy,

    Nice one! Black Vultures are quickly expanding into new England and exciting finds on any trip.
