Along with a nice variety of other birds, 136 thrushes have been banded over the last several mornings. We banded 43 Swainson’s, 6 Gray-cheeked, 3 Veerys, and a Hermit Thrush this morning. They were picking at Elderberries. Also, 20 warbler species were recorded and 77 Bobolinks were counted on the census. 68 species were tallied during the official count period.
