Mid-vacation, mid-migration

Very nice to be away from work for the next couple weeks, especially considering the calls I got from friend and co-worker Susan about a situation there. All I will say is I almost got to travel to Vermont after all...

It's being very difficult to judge the state of the southward avian migration thus far. Wednesday was a nearly incredible day, with feathered friends of varying dappling everywhere. Yesterday not as many, then today barely a peep anywhere. Then to hear from Ma in Nisswa that her driveway is covered by Yellow-rumped Warblers. Crazy!

Hopefully not contracting a bug, almost called off banding today. Probably should have, for the sake of the one bird (a Ruby-crowned Kinglet) we trapped... Hopefully the public programs tomorrow at Carver and Sunday at Ritter Farm go better than that.
