First Warbler of 2008

We banded our first warbler of 2008 the other day-a Western Palm Warbler!

It was the only warbler we got that day we didn't ever hear any others-we did hear a Towhee that I was hoping we would catch-but he did not co-operate. (Oh I saw him too that's how I knew he was a he ;) An Eastern Phoebe was also hanging around but did not oblige us.

We did get a fair amount of Song Sparrows and White Throated Sparrows however including this one.

Hopefully that Palm was the first of many more to come-yay Warbler Season has started!
