The sun continued yesterday, along with 20 knot winds out of the North. These are very poor conditions for migrants to find the Island, so it was surprising to hear that we had gotten an awesome arrival.
|Yesterday, we discovered a Brown Thrasher in the Heligoland tree. It was the skulkiest bird I have ever seen, but we were able to catch it and soon had it in the banding lab. This was a Life Bird for me and melted my face slightly.|
