From mid-March to mid-April, 1960, I had just a little time for banding, the total number being 86. There were 29 White-throated Sparrows, 1 Song Sparrow, 29 Purple Finches, and 1 Catbird. Others were permanent residents. I saw many banded birds during the winter months. Fox Sparrows remained “trap-shy”.
