Daily report – Thursday, 8/25

Hel – lo Yawn!! Thursday, the birds gave the bugs a rest! It’s not the slowest day we’ve had on Appledore but it almost felt like it. Most of what we looked at were scenes like this

No outstanding birds were either seen or caught. Liz and Jeff left us for more productive pursuits. Weather Underground suggests that Saturday could be better! So Kiah and David send you the satisfaction of project progress – even if it isn’t always directly related to the banding station.
