Night of 18 October

Last night was awesome.

A cold, dry (finally) night with northwest winds was the perfect weather to get the owls moving. We had one saw-whet on the first net check and then seven on the second net check. After that, it was busy, busy, busy. Our last owl of the night (Er, morning?) was banded at 0615 hrs leaving the last two hours a little quiet.

We caught a total of 38 northern saw-whets and two barred owls. Of the 38 saw-whets, two were already banded. Ed is working on getting the info on those birds, which I’ll write about a little later.
