Hot weather is resulting in early closing and fewer birds caught.  Looking 
forward to cooler temperatures tomorrow.  Our excitement of the day was the 
recapture of a female Yellow Warbler that was banded as an adult in 2011, 
so at least 9 years old.  Unlike most of our recaptures, she has been 
elusive; still researching but it appears she may have been recaptured only 
one other year.  Here's the details of the day:

Least Flycatcher 1
Warbling Vireo 1 (FOS), banded 2016
House Wren 2
Gray Catbird 3 new, 1 banded 2014
Yellow Warbler 1 new, 1 banded 2011 (see above) and 1 banded 2017
American Redstart 1 (FOS)
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 2

Come visit! Station is open daily, weather permitting, through the end of 
May, except for Memorial Day. We open nets about 6:30 and close around 
noon. If you would like to visit on a weekend, you must pre-register - go 
to the Audubon Society of Greater Denver website. Perhaps the best time for 
birders to visit is early in the morning during the week - fewer people and 
more birds! (School groups arrive each day between 10:00 and 10:30.)
