Daily report – Monday, 6/6

On Monday, our opening was delayed until 0530 as we waited for the rain to stop and for weather that would dry the nets. Although we missed sunrise we did have a very respectable day for this late in the season, with 108 new birds banded, no recaptures or returns and only 1 Common Yellowthroat. You’ll see from the attached report that it was a flycatcher day.

Good wishes from Peg, Susan and Anthony, as we prepare to pack up for the season.
