Owl Banding

Liam, Gannon and I went out last Friday to the Fernald Preserve where they were doing some Saw-whet owl banding. It was cold and late for the boys but we had a blast! Luckily we got to see an owl earlier than later and they didn't get to bed too late. This little Northern Saw-whet owl was pretty darn cute! I am sure there is some kind of "you can't count a bird seen at a banding station, yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah" but since we are nowhere near breaking Komito's
record of 748, we are going to go ahead and count it. 398. Sad but true. Our summer hiccup hurt bad number wise but its been a fantastically fun year anyway. And, we aren't done yet!

  1. Wish I had time to trap again this year. I know I'd have caught a bunch this year if I had tried.
