May 28th – Cool & Wet…..Again

Gorgeous ASY male Indigo Bunting. -NRF

What a difference today – the weather was cool with winds from the north-east. A few of the nets located closer to the banding lab were opened and closed in-between rain showers early this morning. By mid-morning the rain held off long enough to open all of the nets and process a total of 35 birds. The school group visiting the lab today saw a nice mix of species.
