Back-yard banding above the Patuxent River gorge was limited to early mornings and evenings on 28 days from 20 August through 12 October, and four full days within the same period.
Although the number of birds captured per 100 net-hours was well above average in each of the three months, the only species banded in unusually high numbers was the Gray Catbird (68 birds vs. 61, 39, and 32 in 1973, 1974, and 1975).
