We don’t know whether this is silence before a large number of migrants show up or if they’ve gone through, but for the last two weeks, our neting is slow. We have seen some Winter wrens, Brown creepers, and kinglets around. We have only banded one White-throated sparrow so far. Even though we banded only five birds for the morning, we are still keeping good standard net-hours every day. Despite of the quiet we have some good observation, such as 25 Chimney swifts recorded on September 27 census. Also, numerous American kestrels showed up along the farm field for the last two days. We observed a Lesser black-backed gull on the point today.Photo: Rose-breasted grosbeak See MoreSee Less
