Daily Report – Tuesday, 5/24

We have very little to report today, as we were closed for most of the day due to wind, drizzle and rain. We opened the core 5 for an hour in the morning before the rain came in, then were able to open for a few hours in the afternoon. We had a grand total 1 bird banded, 1 recapture and 1 return – a Gray Catbird originally banded in Spring of 2013.

Bill gave a most entertaining talk about the gull project and Anthony spoke about the banding station to a group of 14 high school students and their 2 teachers, who are visiting from Ithaca, NY.

We are all hoping for better weather and more birds in the morning.
