Migrant Landbirds on Block Island

With the support of two dedicated volunteers on Block Island, we were able to document fall migrating landbirds on the Kurz property. Scott Comings and Corrie Heinz contributed in excess of 59 hours each, volunteering on 13 days. This included two days in the spring (May 11 and 24) and 11 days in the fall between Sept. 20 and Nov. 1 2009. A total of 968 birds were banded of 59 different species. A summary of the 99 species banded over the past five years consistently documents the most common species on the island during migration are myrtle warbler.
