McIntyre Marsh - May 8

The bird traffic through the marsh was somewhat reduced today in comparison to last weekend. Although the day's banding total was not very high (28 birds), there was a good variety of species including two new species for the season; Wilson's Warbler and Wilson's Snipe. The number of White-crowned Sparrows have dropped off substantially, but the numbers of Savannah Sparrow have increased. In fact, this was the top species banded today with 11 banded.

The station will be open again tomorrow (Sunday) morning from 7am to noon.
