We had a great night of banding last night with 27 saw-whets captured. We banded 26 new saw-whets and had one foreign retrap that was a hatch year bird with no info at this time (probably banded at Whitefish Point Bird Observatory this past summer).
That’s puts us at 102 Northern Saw-whet Owls so far.
It’s currently drizzling over the Straits, but is forecasted to clear any time. As soon as the weather improves, the nets will be opened and surveys will commence.
