Our daily numbers of birds have gone down over the past few days. However, we’ve had great diversity, with as many as 17 different species of passerines. Recent highlights include Connecticut Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, and Philadelphia Vireo. In addition, 25 raptors have been trapped and banded during the last three days.
