Busy Banding Weekend

On 8-9 October 2011, we enjoyed a busy banding weekend in Northfield. In all we ringed 69 individuals, comprising 20 species.  Our totals were: American Goldfinch 2, American Robin 13, Black-capped Chickadee 7, Blue-headed Vireo 2, Brown Creeper 1, Dark-eyed Junco 2, Downy Woodpecker 3, Fox Sparrow 1, Golden-crowned Kinglet 1, Hermit Thrush 1, Nashville Warbler 1, Orange-crowned Warbler 2, Red-bellied Woodpecker 1, Red-eyed Vireo 1, Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3, Swainson's Thrush 2, Tennessee Warbler 3, White-breasted Nuthatch 2, White-throated Sparrow 3, Yellow-rumped Warbler 18.  Prior to the weekend, we encountered relatively few migrants. The photograph of a Ruby-crowned Kinglet is left over from this spring's banding.
