Ahhh, the last day of May.... Things are winding down and the breeding birds are stationed in their territories. Twelve species of birds captured today. I did hear a Black-throated Blue Warbler singing around the station before and while setting up nets but it did not sing or stay around much after that time- or it was quiet. Enjoy the last day of the month!
