VARC - April Blog!
- Hi Birders and Banders,
I've just uploaded the first blog of the year covering set up in
March and our first month of spring migration monitoring in April!
An extremely busy period with LOTS of birds and visitors to the Colony
Farm banding station and tremendous diversity with first banding records
for AMERICAN TREE SPARROW, CASSIN'S VIREO and two NASHVILLE
WARBLERS, DUSKY FLYCATCHER AND HOUSE WREN among the many other species
banded this month.
We have received a number of inquires from birders regarding help with
early season Empid identification, specifically separating Hammond's
from Dusky Flycatchers and we have included a short photo essay on the
two species which we hope will help!

Happy spring birding and banding!
