First Palms banded for Fall 2007

After finding the Palm Warblers at home, we finally banded our first Palms of the Fall 2007 season. We actually had both varieties.

First up was the Western Palm right after dawn.

Even after some thought it might be a Yellow (Eastern) Palm due to a little yellow on the breast, an actual Yellow Palm dropped in later in the day.

Note the overall yellow including into the supercilium.

One other notable catch was a beautiful Black and White Warbler.

Topped off a nice mix to a good day.
