Some Interesting Nesting Returns

Published in 1961

While many species of passerine birds are “permanent residents” throughout the state, others, perhaps he majority of species which nest here, are only “summer residents.” This is particularly true of the warblers and vireos, most of which winter in Central and/or South America. During the past seven years I have had the opportunity to band a small number of these “summer residents” and to retrap some of them in later years. Below is presented a list of such returns (warblers and vireos) with one exception. Pine Warbler (Dendroica pinus) returns have been omitted since I consider those birds which have been retrapped to be “permanent residents.” This list includes all birds captured hefore September 7, 1961. They are listed by band number, date of banding, and date of recapture, in that order.
