Spring 2016 Banding Totals


WOW, what another great season!! We banded 2,081 new birds this spring, recaptured 123 unique previously banded individuals and handled 81 different species.  As always, a big thank you to our volunteers as well as to everyone that came out or helped support us in one way or another this season, we couldn't have done it without you!


Our top ten species banded in the spring of 2016 are:


Tying for the tenth spot is the Black-throated Blue Warbler. We banded 50 of these birds in 2016 compared to 19 in 2015.
Also tied for tenth place is the Blackpoll Warbler. We banded 50 of these in 2016 compared to 62 in 2015. This was the only species in our top ten that we banded more of in 2015.

In ninth place is the American Redstart with 58 newly banded birds in 2016 compared to 37 in 2015.

In eighth place is the Common Yellowthroat with 71 newly banded birds in 2016 compared to 65 in 2015.

The Ruby-crowned Kinglet came in at seventh place this year with 82 newly banded birds compared to only 2 in 2015!

At number six is the Western Palm Warbler with 133 newly banded birds in 2016 compared to only 19 in the 2015.

In fifth place is the Magnolia Warbler with 136 newly banded birds in 2016 compared to 86 in 2015.

The Myrtle Warbler came in fourth place with a grand total of 150 newly banded birds in 2016 compared to 41 in 2015. This is normally one of our top species banded so it was nice to see it return to the top five this season. 

Gray Catbird, with 218 newly banded individuals, came in  third this season compared to 217 banded in 2015. 

Surprisingly, the White-throated Sparrow came in at number two with 227 newly banded birds compared to 100 in 2015.

And at number one is the Yellow Warbler with 324 newly banded individuals compared to 149 in 2015.
