Finally,warblers, flycatchers and thrushes were observed flying south
today
(has been north for past week or more). The result was our highest one
day
banding total of the season. 45 birds were banded today (summary
below). The
highlight of the banding was a rather early Ruby-crowned Kinglet captured
in
net 2. Species banded for the first time this fall included: 2 Bay-breasted
Warbler, 1 Western Palm Warbler, 1 Black-throated Green Warbler and
the
aforementioned Kinglet.

Season banding total now stands at 395, and the season species total
(observed
and/or captured) is 95. Interestingly, Long Point Bird Observatory banding
totals are consistent with our numbers thus far, indicating a widespread
"quiet" phenomenon.
