Owl Banding 10/23/16

Point LaBarbe, St. Ignace, MI
Night of October 23rd, 2016

High winds made for a relatively slow night, totaling only 12 new Saw-whets caught (Its weird to think what I would have considered a good night this spring is now considered a slow night this fall!). 9 were female (6 hatch years, and 3 after second year birds), 1 was male (another hatch year), and the last 2 were unknown (1 second year, and an after second year bird). Our season total is now up to 473 Northern Saw-whet Owls banded, 4 Long-eared Owls, and 1 Barred Owl.
