Hi All--

I have been traveling most of October and have been away for the last four
days.  I was surprised to band 6 Black-capped Chickadees today.  Since I
have an almost constant banding effort underway at home, I wonder where
these birds came from.  Jansen reports chickadee migrations along the
Superior shore, but there is no banding data to support chickadee

I also caught 5 White-breasted Nuthatches.  Two of these were already banded
(8 October 2006 and 26 March 2007).  I would have assumed that I had already
banded my local nuthatches.

Best bird was this very partically albino Downy Woodpecker:
