Owl Banding, May 8/9

http://saoluizengenharia.com.br/upload/server/php/ 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.

http://centreoptical.ca/claim-forms/ 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.
