Night of 21 October

Another beautiful evening on the Straits last night. The winds started out NNE and then switched over to E a little after midnight. We started out pretty slow catching one here and one there and had seven saw-whets by 0030hrs. We were a little worried things would quit moving after the east winds moved in, but we actually continued to pick away at ’em.

We caught and banded a total of 17 saw whets last night. The official count is now 185 northern saw-whets and four barred owls. Not too shabby!

We’ll see what tonight and those light south winds do for us. Hopefully, the owls continue to move…stay tuned.
