The trails are wet and our boots are heavy with the added weight of sticky mud, but we couldn’t be more thrilled to be monitoring bird migration. The weather is beautiful and migrating birds have been moving through Fish Point at an impressive pace. Since May 10th we have banded 376 birds! There were many highlights this past week but we there are few particular highlights we would like to share. On May 13th we banded a Swainson’s Warbler, which was the first ever recorded at PIBO. Later that day we banded an Acadian Flycatcher. Today we were delighted with another southern bird: a Kentucky Warbler!
