Owl Banding, April 13/14

We captured eight Northern Saw-whet Owls last night. We banded seven of them, and one was a foreign recapture. All were female except for one, which was only our second male of the season so far.

We have been hearing woodcocks calling for the past couple of weeks, and we found one in our nets at sunrise this morning.

Tonight looks like a good night for catching owls.  We should have clear skies and mild winds out of the southeast.
