Frost Expected – No Owls

There is a good chance for a frost here in Allegany State Park this evening!  The skies were clear with W to SW winds and temps are starting to get cold.  I opened owl banding nets from 7pm EDT to midnight without any owls around.  I ended up going to bed with the temps around 30.9F. Spent the day relaxing after the Camp Flickr weekend ( Nexrad radar has been down since the 13th due to power problems up in Buffalo!  I noticed that it got back online around 8pm EDT.  Here you can see some movement of birds through western New York!
