Owl Banding, April 18/19

There was a very light drizzle early in the evening, but the weather quickly cleared up for the remainder of the night.  Although we did not catch any owls, there was quite a bit of excitement.

We enjoyed listening to a couple of Wilson’s Snipes making their “winnowing” sounds while flying over our heads.  At dawn, we had two Sharp-shinned Hawks in our nets.  We also had a Hermit Thrush.

We are hoping that tonight will bring us some owls!  It should be partly cloudy with light and variable winds.
