As Tina reported, the place was jumping!  We banded the following species
(bold type are unusual for us):  Common Yellowthroat, *Worm-eating Warbler,
Hooded Warbler, *Magnolia Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, *Red-breasted
Nuthatch, *Canada Warbler, American Redstart, Black and White Warbler,
*Wilson's
Warbler, *Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Veery and Gray Catbird.  The
Red-breasted Nuthatch may be nesting here as it was a male with both a
brood patch (#2) and a CP.  Males help in the brooding and develop brood
patches so he can't be too far from his nest.

Birdcraft is located at 314 Unquowa Road in Fairfield.
