Owl Banding, April 27/28

One Northern Saw-whet Owl and one Long-eared Owl were banded last night.  The saw-whet was a third year female.  She had fresh blood on her feet from a recent meal when we caught her.  After hearing scurrying under a nearby bush, we found several mice in the area.

We were unable to determine the sex of the Long-eared Owl, but it was an after second year bird.  Another LEOW was seen taking off toward the north at dusk.

We heard the howl of a coyote in the middle of the night, and observed a Great Blue Heron fly by during an especially beautiful  sunrise.

Tonight should be cloudy with a northeast wind.
