Owl Banding, May 5/6

Two Northern Saw-whet Owls were banded last night.   Both owls were female.   One was a second year bird and one was a third year bird.

We stayed open a little later than usual this morning to see if we could catch any Sharp-shinned Hawks.  We were successful, and banded one second year, female sharpie.

Other recent bird sightings around the banding site include Osprey, American Kestrel, Chipping Sparrow, Spotted Sandpiper, and Eastern Whip-poor-will.

We should be able to band for most of the night tonight before a storm rolls in.
