Friday, 6 November 2020 – Eleven more owls!

Christopher Lehman

Not number 22, but and a nameless saw-whet

We caught 11 birds tonight. 9 of them were hatch-year birds, one was a second-year, and one was an after-hatch-year (it had a weird molting pattern). We also had one male tonight, which I think is our first male of the season, but this puts our total bird count at 22 new birds and one foreign recapture. This number is already half of our last year’s total, in just 4 nights of open nets.
