This was our biggest day yet at the Mad Island Banding Station! We caught 48 birds of 16 species. Highlights were our first northern waterthrush, indigo bunting, gray catbird and a beautiful blue-gray gnatcatcher. White-eyed vireos came in droves today. We got 18 today!
Our bay side banding station allows us to observe many other species, as well. Yesterday we saw a coyote, an alligator, a rattlesnake, bottle-nosed dolphins and white-tailed deer!
