We banded two saw-whets last night. They were captured early, on our first and second net runs. The rest of the night was quiet.
Although we did not catch any big owls, we are fairly certain there was one in the area. We found some remains of a saw-whet that was likely preyed upon by a larger owl. It was not near any of our nets and we did not find a band.
We are optimistic about tonight. It should be clear and warmer than what we have gotten used to! Winds will be out of the southwest at 5 to 10 mph.
