Another clear, calm night at the Straits, which made for another slow 11-hour stretch. Four Northern saw-whets were banded and, let me tell ya, they were a bit feisty last night. Three of the four were HY birds and the fourth was an ASY bird (and very cooperative compared to the younger saw-whets). Ed and I put up another net through an opening in the woods to increase our chances of catching any other migrants. Let’s hope for a few long-eareds or barreds.

Stay tuned.
