Fall Banding at MIlford Point

Fall banding is in full swing at our Milford Point Coastal Center right now. The trees around the center are abuzz with a plethora of Yellow-rumped Warblers (Setophaga coronata) and many other migrants. Here are a few that have been caught recently at the banding station.
