Today, Sunday, we held one of our two fall banding sessions at Ritter Farm Park in Lakeville, MN which is south of the Twin Cities. Our numbers weren't as high as Saturday but we had some new species including:
Golden winged Warbler
Totals for the weekend were 43 birds of 16 species. Nice way to start the fall. Below are some photos from Sunday.
The weather continues to transition from summer to fall and even though the recent weather has been warmer than normal, it won't be long before the mornings turn frosty. If all goes well I won't pack away my nets until early November. Please check back often to see how the migration is progressing.
