Owl Banding, April 5/6

Our banding station was in operation until about 2:00 this morning when it began snowing.  Before the snow hit, it was a hazy night with mild southeast winds and temperatures in the low 30’s.

We banded two saw-whets, both of which were captured on our first net run.  They were both second year females.  After the first net run, we didn’t catch any more birds.

It looks like snow willl continue through the night tonight.  We should be in the clear for tomorrow night.
