First day of banding

Hello from Johnson’s Bayou!!!
We had a great first day in the field today. On our very first day of banding, we caught 61 birds!! These included the first bird of the season, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and several species that winter in the area. (Will won the contest for who could guess the first bird). We are still working on clearing the trails and need to set up a couple more nets but we did quite well for our first day.
Everyone is getting settled into their various jobs and we are all getting excited for what will of course be, a very successful field season.
