Good day.

We had an interesting start to the evening with a sharp-shinned hawk in the net at dusk. She was a beautiful ATY bird and was happy to be on her way when we finished banding her just after dark. Other than that, we ended up catching another 4 saw-whets between 2345 hrs-0130 hrs.
A couple of other notable species: Two bats (possible little brown bats) and four American woodcock at dawn as I was wrapping up the nets.
