Sorry this is a bit late in coming. Thursday was fairly quiet with just Chris and I at the station and a total of 3 more Saw whets, all female. The night started clear, around 50F, and dropped into the mid forties with around 80% cloud cover. Our first bird of the evening was an SY foreign recapture that we don’t yet have banding info for but we look forward to receiving. Our second bird was also a recapture who is probably getting sick of seeing us as she is going 3 for 3. She has now been caught all three nights that the station has been open, hitting a separate net each time. Our third and final bird was a new HY bird. This brings our new season total to 12 new birds.
This is the owl that has gone 3 for 3. If she looks angry … she is.
