The banding experience was fun and educational and it was good to see that so many people were interested in the birds.
After we left the owl site we made a quick trip to find Blue Grosbeak and Dickcissel in northern Montgomery County. We met up with Dustin Welsh and managed to find both birds along with Bobolinks in the high meadows. It was a very interesting, albeit hot, evening but well worth the effort.
