Owl Banding, April 4/5

After several nights stuck inside due to bad weather, we were finally able to open nets last night!  It was a clear and cold night.  Winds started out of the northwest at about 12mph and decreased throughout the night.

We captured and banded one Northern Saw-whet Owl at around 5:30 this morning.  It was an after third year female with a very interesting molt pattern.

I am hoping tonight will be more active than last night.  Winds should be out of the southeast at around 10mph.  Snow is in the forecast for late tonight, but we should be able to get some valuable banding time in before then!
