2017 Results are in!

Here's the tally:
360 newly banded birds, 242 returning birds (banded in past years) = 602 total hummingbirds banded
Grand Total of new birds banded and returning birds from 2003 to 2017 = 6,129

 AHY=After Hatch Year; ASY=After Second Year; ATY=After Third Year... We describe birds by using the terms "After Hatch Year" etc. because unless you catch a bird as a hatchling, you don't know how old it is.  Adult Hummingbirds can only be aged by looking up the year they were originally banded.  Newly banded adults are AHY.  Our oldest bird to date is a Black-chinned Male, N-57688.  He was captured in August 2004 as an AHY.  We subsequently recaptured him in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2013, & 2014!  The July 2014 recapture makes him an A11Y hummingbird!
