IPBO, Spring Migration Monitoring, Week 5

Blackpoll Warbler

Wind and rain meant net closures and another 3 days site closure due to military activity, making for a disappointing weekly banding total of 74 birds.

A Purple Martin was sighted here for the first time this Spring on the 24th May. It was, unfortunately, chased away by the Tree Swallows but we live in hope that they will re-colonise our very desirable martin houses one day.

Blackpoll Warblers, Traill’s Flycatchers and Chimmney Swifts arrived. 80 Brants were seen and heard heading North. Students from Nepean High School visited on the 28th May, they saw a few birds in hand and enjoyed a tour of the site. 3 Eastern Kingbirds were captured and banded. Bill and I banded the Eastern Bluebird nestlings from the boxes near the gate.
