The day started out busier in the nets, but after 10 a.m., the number of birds caught basically stopped. Another hot day.
But, as always, Appledore has surprises. On the second net round, on the way back, an Eastern Kingbird was found in Near Line – another species we frequently see, but is an infrequent visitor in the net lanes. And the last bird of the day, on the last net round, a very young house wren – another first for the season.
Liz and David arrived at 5:10 p.m. on the Kingsbury. We enjoyed a quiet supper with the staff and then tomorrow…. approximately 150 people will be arriving for the 50th anniversary celebration.
We send greetings your way,
Peg, Kiah, Liz and David
