El Premier Muchacho

OVEN_first bird_LuisGles_081518 crop

We opened again for the 2018 fall season on August 15, and the first bird captured was this Ovenbird. We also caught several Northern cardinals; two adults originally banded in 2009 and 2013 and some of their offspring born this spring or summer. Migration is just a trickle right now as the weather pattern is pretty dull. Winds are out of the southeast and there have been no overnight thunderstorms to make the birds land. Still, we did manage to capture a classic early migrant, the Louisiana waterthrush. These start showing up in the area in July and are mostly done moving through by the first week of September.
