It’s that time of year again! It’s almost hard to believe, isn’t it?
The fall banding season will begin this Sunday and will continue through November 10th. The weather this week looks clear, which is great for everyone still wanting to hold onto summer and enjoy the last bits of any warm weather we’ll have. While that’s great news for the sun- worshipers (me included), it could mean a slow start to the migration (though we never expect huge numbers this time of year anyway).
Banding will occur every night on Pointe La Barbe from dusk to dawn in the absence of rain or winds exceeding 15 mph. Please contact Ed Pike for information about owl banding trips at 231-758-3319.

We look forward to seeing you!
