August was an average month with 85 birds banded. August 30th was a great day with a hatch year Bald Eagle and a hatch year Peregrine Falcon banded at the main station. The numbers for Red-tailed Hawk and American Kestrel were lower than expected in August. We banded 130 birds so far in September including 4 Northern Harriers, 110 Sharp-shinned Hawks, 7 Red-tailed Hawks, one Broad-winged Hawk, and 8 Merlins. The September numbers show some improvement, but are still lower than average.
