Hi All,

We are halfway through our 14th season of migration monitoring at the TLBO here in the West Chilcotin. It has been a relatively slow season so far with many of our local breeders seeming to not fair so well after a cold summer. Our major highlight for the season so far was a Gray-cheeked Thrush that we banded, species 203 for the TLBO! For a more extensive run-down of the first half of the season you can check out my "Mid-season Report" on our blog at:

Happy birding,
