Immature Orange-crowned Warbler at Dead Creek, Addison - Photo by Henry Trombley

On October 2nd Rodney Olsen, with a large crew of helpers and observers, mist-netted and banded an immature Orange-crowned Warbler at the Dead Creek Wildlife Day bird-banding demonstration. The banding took place at the Route 17 Dead Creek boat access and parking area in Addison. Orange-crowned Warblers are common in the West but rare migrants in New England and the East. It was a first for Dead Creek Bird Observatory banders.
