Owl Banding, May 8/9

Despite a fairly strong northwest wind last night, we banded 7 saw-whets!  All of the birds were female, with the exception of one “unknown”.  3 of the birds were second years, and the rest were after third years.

We had another great look at the northern lights last night.

Tonight should be clear had with winds out of the southeast.  We hope to continue to see a push of owls coming through as we approach the end of our season.
