Catching Up ….. September 6th, 7th, and 8th – Hot, Hazy, and Humid!

Three days of oppressive heat with humidity values in the low 40’s. Even though banding totals were low for all three days, I handled a nice variety of warblers. On September 8th, when I was on a net round, I saw a Sharp-shinned Hawk in the one net (Net #6) and I ran hoping to catch it before it ‘bounced’ out. She was quiet – a nice bird to handle and band.
