Plus Two

Another two NSWO were captured and banded last night. The first (second year, unknown sex) was captured at 11:30 pm and the last (after second year female), was captured at 6:00 this morning.

It looks like the winds are still steady from the east and are predicted to be around 5-10 mph tonight.

On a side note, I ran two audio lures last night: the usual NSWO audio lure plus a Long-eared Owl (LEOW) audio lure at our second net location. Last year, we didn’t see much activity at the second net, so it’ll be interesting to see how the audio lure works out as the season continues.
