It was quite the experience! And although I knew we had a lot of grosbeaks, I'm a little surprised at the number banded! And in all those captures, not one was a recapture of a grosbeak! All the grosbeaks in the nets were 'new'.

We banded one oriole that immediately went back into the net and was re-released, and caught one chickadee that had been banded in March here, but everything else was a newbie.
