A total of 265 birds have been banded since the 6th (there was no banding on the 8th due to poor weather). Two MacGIllvray's Warbler were banded this week; this species is perhaps the rarest warbler in the Yukon where it is at the extreme northern extent of its range. A Dusky Flycatcher banded on the 11th was also notable. Also banded were 2 more of each Least and Yellow-bellied flycatchers. We also had some new species for the season....Fox Sparrow and Downy Woodpecker.
