Steve Baker shouted out to me Falcon! Saw the large falcon  on the whitish side disappearing into the woodlot at Darrow’s could not relocate. Never can tell what might show up! Tomorrow sounds like a snow storm.

Whitefish Point Recapture

We were unable to band last night due to the weather. Unfortunately, the next couple of nights don’t look too promising either.

Despite not being able to open nets, we did learn something interesting yesterday. We learned that an owl we captured on Monday that already had a band, was banded last spring in Whitefish Point. This was our first foreign recapture of the season!
