North Winds Bring Owls

We had a good number of owls move through the point last night. A total of 20 NSWO were captured and five of them were already wearing bands. Of these banded birds, one was banded at Whitefish Point Bird Observatory (WPBO) on 8-9-14; one was banded at Steven’s Point, WI on 10-11-14, and one was a recapture we banded at Pointe La Barbe last fall on 10-19-14! There was no information available at this time for the other two birds, but they were both hatch year birds likely banded at WPBO this past summer.

Northeast winds are predicted for tonight as well as cooler temps (43 F). Hopeful for another busy night.
