Successful start to owl surveys

Clear skies and a light southwest breeze made for a beautiful first night of banding on the point. As mentioned in an earlier post, we generally expect things to be slow this early in the migration. With that in mind, we were delighted to have one Northern Saw-whet Owl (NSWO) on our second net check of the night. Despite our dash from the starting line, things remained slow and we finished at dawn with a total of three NSWO.
