Banding is picking up, we're now catching 50+ birds a day, warblers are increasing with 15 or so species a day around, also we're now starting to catch Sharp-shinned Hawks. The first White-throated Sparrow of the fall was caught on the 4th Sept. Blue jays are now moving and we are getting good numbers of Red-breasted Nuthatches. Green Herons and Black-crowned Night Herons are regular in the harbour.
