Well, this won't be the most exciting report, I'm afraid! There was a significant drop in activity over the past two days, with fewer birds moving around in general and many fewer birds in our nets. Today was also the first day the station had to close for weather, as there were variable wind gusts breezing through the park. 

This report is for 9/22 through 9/23. 

New bands: 
Swainson's Thrush - 1
Wilson's Warbler - 1

Wilson's Warbler - 1

We are hoping next week will be a little busier! This banding station will be operating Tuesday through Saturday, weather and trail closures permitting, from sunrise until about 12:30 PM. Next week we are opening at 6:40. Peak hours for seeing birds in hand aren't yet established, but so far we have low to moderately steady activity from about 7 to 9 and another small push at around 10:30. Park at the Maxwell Natural Area parking lot and walk south along the trail towards Dixon Reservoir, and you will see our table and awning on the little hillside to the left of the main trail. Consider signing up for your visit at this link;  registration is free and helps us plan ahead for visitor numbers. I hope to see you there!
