And it didn't stop with just numbers. I told Rick, one of the sub-banders that our luck was so good, we should try for unicorns, since we already pulled in two mythical species already. We got not only a hatch year male American kestrel, but also a hatch year Broad-winged hawk! Both of those are very tough birds to convince to come in for us.
Wait - what's this? Actually - we got 35 birds on Saturday - two Blue Jays found their way in our nets. We didn't band them, since our permit is not for passerines, but they sure were pretty!
I don't think the new M Knight Shamalan movie "Devil" did so well this weekend. He should have used this AHY female Sharp-shinned hawk! AAAAHHHHH!
