Owl Banding, April 7/8

As I was shaking the nets free of snow yesterday afternoon, I noticed an abundance of American Robins in the area.  So, I was not surprised to find a robin in one of our nets shortly after opening it.

We banded only one saw-whet last night.  There were fairly strong winds coming off of the lake.

Early in the morning, we discovered that a deer had ran through one of our nets, completely tearing it down!  We have some major repairs to do this evening.

There is a chance for snow or flurries tonight, but we are hoping to get a full night in.
