Owls move despite southwest wind

I was delighted to catch a few migrating Northern Saw-whet Owls last night. The winds were predicted to be southwest at 15+ mph, but the night actually started off with light west winds that never exceeded 10 mph even after they switched around from the southwest. Seven saw-whets were captured, banded and released, which makes our official count 117 NSWO with 30 days left of the season!

I’m still waiting for that long-eared to show up. Maybe if our readers keep their fingers and toes crossed?

West winds 10-15 mph are predicted for tonight with 80% chance of rain after 11 pm. I’m hoping for a good movement of birds before the rain moves in…
