On the night of 12 October, the banding station closed at 2330 hours due to rain. One NSWO was captured, banded and released early in the night before the rain came through.
We really didn’t expect last night (13-Oct) to be very busy with the strong NW winds and predicted rain showers, but the weather turned around shortly after dusk and we actually ended up having a good night. We banded eighteen Northern Saw-whet Owls! That brings us to 136.
Tonight’s winds are predicted to be west at around 10 mph-should see a few more birds moving through tonight, too!
