Yesterday, July 6, my two subpermittees got a team of 7 together to band Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at our biggest remaining site in Michigan's lower peninsula, near Constantine in St. Joseph County. We had 2 dedicated trappers, 2 recorders (one for males and one for females), and 2 dedicated banders (me and one of my "subs". One of my subpermittees was a "floater" who mostly trapped, but also banded when we needed to catch up.
