Second Biggest Night

After the last few gusty nights in the Straits, a calm night was just what the doctor ordered.

We started off with one Northern Saw-whet Owl on our first net check of the night and remained fairly steady until dawn. Fifteen NSWO were captured; we banded fourteen of these birds and had one recapture from Babcock, Wisconsin that was banded on October 18, 2014 as a hatch year female. That makes 67 total NSWO captures so far this season with seven total recaptures.

A huge thank you to my dear friend, Diane Backlund, for being a rock star assistant last night!

Northwest winds at 5-10 mph are predicted for tonight along with clear skies. Rain is predicted for Thursday, so there could be a good movement of birds between tonight and tomorrow night. Stay tuned.
