South Wind Turnover.
It cannot be called an influx. The daily numbers of new birds banded on Sunday and Monday did not break the teens. However, the south breeze of Saturday night and again Sunday brought in a Catbird, an Ovenbird, a Worm-eating Warbler and a Great-crested Flycatcher, each new species for the season. Things are looking up. More birds are behind these. Gnatcatchers have moved on; no recaptures or new individuals in two days. None heard today.
The Green Heron pictured is the individual here at First Landing. The previous pictured Green was an Everglades bird.
