"Sing a song of six pence,
Pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty song birds,
Claimed our net, set high,
When the net was opened
the birds began to sing,
Weigh us, band us, free us to the sky."
[Anonomous]
 
Oh well, I am not a poet!
 
But, Jack Hilsabeck and I netted and banded twenty-four birds this morning on the campus of Missouri Western State University, Saint Joseph. We were set up from about 7 AM until 10 AM. This was a morning's high total for this year's fall bird banding effort.
 
Nashville Warbler - 13 (Cool weather must have pushed them down!)
House Wren - 3
Gray Catbird - 1
Wilson's Warbler - 1
Common Yellowthroat  - 1
Least Flycatcher - 1
Black-capped Chickadee - 1 (Ouch, they can really bite!)
Mourning Warbler - 1
Red-eyed Vireo - 1
Indigo Bunting - 1
 
We will probably be out again in the morning to see what will be moving through.
