Atlantic Flyway review: Region V

North American Bird Bander



Because of the change in regional boundaries, Region V now includes Piedmont and Coastal Plains areas of the southeastern states from Maryland to the Gulf of Mexico, bordered on the west by Interstate Rt. 81 and US Rt. 220. Maryland's mountain stations are now reporting through Region IV (NASS 2:184-187). Region V welcomes three new stations this year: Colesville and Sandy Spring in the Maryland Piedmont and Long Beach on the coast of North Carolina. The Round Bay and Bellevue Stations were not operated in 1976 and banding was too sporadic at Irish Grove Wildlife Sanctuary for their contributions to be included in this summary.

Station activities for 1976 are summarized in Table 1. Banding effort (net-hours] was the lowest since 1970, but the 20,560 birds banded in Region V were only 3 percent below the 8 year average of 21,138. The number of birds per 100 net-hours for all stations combined was 38.5, which is similar to the other high seasons of 1969, 1970 and 1974.
