After setting up the nets it took a long time to get back to the banding station because there was so much going on. Steve, Nadia and I quickly picked up Wilson’s Warbler and White-eyed Vireo. Nashville Warblers were everywhere and White-crowned Sparrows were singing from every hedge around. One tree held at least 10 different Yellow-rumped Warblers at a time. By the time we made it back to the station, they already had some secret bird to show us…a Worm-eating Warbler! We ended up banding some great birds and seeing lots of migrants moving through. Altogether it was a great start to the day.
Birding lists (I made multiple, roughly one for each loop I walked to check the nets)
