18 October Owl Update

Winds were strong from the southwest all night and not much was moving. The first of two saw-whets came through at 0330 hours and the second was captured at 0630 hours just before the winds hit 15 mph (although they were gusting higher than that all night).

We just had a little drizzle move through the point and the winds are exceeding 18 mph from the west. We’ll see how the night goes. For now, the nets will remain closed until these winds die down, which they’re predicted to do. Fingers crossed for a push of birds once this weather settles.
