Dauphin Island-Update

Dauphin Island- Update

Most of the birds that are around are warblers, flycatchers, and vireos and my nets seem too low for catching them in this habitat. I think my nets are properly placed for when the thrushes really start pushing through so I’m not too concerned about missing out on the black-and-whites or the wood-pewees. Things haven’t been as hot which means for longer field days so more chances to catch birds (YAY!) but it also means longer field days (boo). Out at 0600 and close at 1500 or 1600 makes for a tired graduate student.

Combined list (don’t laugh at my low numbers please):

American Redstart: 2B

Magnolia Warbler: 1B

White-eyed Vireo: 2B

Hooded Warbler: 1B

House Wren: 1B

Prothonotary Warbler: 1B

Red-eyed Vireo: 1B

Swainson’s Thrush: 1B

Northern Mockingbird: 1B

Gray Catbird: 1B

Northern Cardinal: 2B

Red-bellied Woodpecker: 1C

Brown Thrasher: 1C

Carolina Wren: 2R

Total: 14B, 2C, 2R

Running Season Total: 42B, 12C, 5R
