Inbound migrants on Wednesday included Lauren and a short surprise visit from Dr. Julie Ellis! Outbound migrants included Chef Charlotte (very temporarily, we hope), Peg and a lot of birds. Wednesday was a much mellower day in the banding station, which (like most things) was both good and bad.
The good: having more time to look at and learn about the birds — and there were some nice ones! Katherine’s id skills are coming along great, and she’s very nice about it when we accidentally reveal the id on a quiz bird.
The bad: well, fewer birds.
And there was no ugly to be found on another beautiful Appledore spring day!
Cheers from Liz, Peg, Bill, Katherine, and Lauren
