I wanted to post a brief summary of this weekend's banding. We had good weather both days and it appears the migration is picking up. On Saturday we banded 20 birds at Ritter Farm Park in Lakeville, MN and on Sunday in Wisconsin we banded 49 new birds and had 4 recaptures including a very exciting recapture of a banded American Goldfinch that is not ours. We are waiting to hear from the Bird Banding Lab as to the origin of this bird.
I will be posting more details and photos from this weekend later today.
