CBO 10/23/08

It was a little chilly today at the banding station (36F), so Michelle, Sr. Marty and I had a nice leisurely breakfast at the Motherhouse. Corned-beef hash w/ eggs - my favorite!!!

It got light at about 8am, and we had the nets up by 8:15am. Before we even had the first net up, and Tufted Titmouse was in it! We had just recaptured a bird we had banded in January. Very cool! We ended up recapturing 3 Titmice that were banded together in January.

Other species banded today included, Carolina Chickadee, House Finch and American Goldfinch. We had several visitors at the station too! I love it when the Sisters drop by! They have so much enthusiasm for the birds.
