Mad Island Banding

April 8, 2012 by Bea Harrison


The Nature Conservancy's Mad Island land steward, Julie Sullivan, is visiting the banding station today. She must be good luck because we just caught an adult male cerulean warbler. It is a blue beauty!

Also caught today: northern parula, ovenbird (a new one for us) and indigo bunting. Yesterday we had a worm-eating warbler and 2 prothonotary warblers.

Catch rate still slow, but a we are getting a great diversity.
