The following is an update on migration monitoring results since last
Friday.

Banding has slowed down once again after a more active weekend. We
have been
banding an average of 20 birds/day since the last update. Despite the
lower
numbers of birds present, there were some new species banded for the
fall which
include: Western Palm Warbler (06/09), Hermit Thrush (07/09), 1
Rose-breasted
Grosbeak (08/09), 1 Philadelphia and 1 Blue-headed Vireo (08/09) and
finally a
Connecticut Warbler was captured out of net 3 on the 7th. Also, 2 White-
throated Sparrows were observed at the tip on census today.

Banding summary for today is given below:

Newly banded: 18 of 9 species
Sharp-shinned Hawk-1
Least Flycatcher-1
Red-eyed Vireo-1
Swainson's Thrush-3
Grey-cheeked Thrush-1
Nashville Warbler-1
Magnolia Warbler-7
Black-throated Blue Warbler-1
Wilson's Warbler-2

Recaptures: 7 of 4 sp.
Eastern Wood Pewee-1
Swainson's Thrush-3
Grey Catbird-1
Magnolia Warbler-2

Today's effort brings us to 488 birds banded and 103 species
encountered for
the fall season.
