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 (www.campflickr.com). 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!

  3. Marg – Radar Ornithology is a place to do even when banding and its a must for understanding if your going to have a good or bad day. Weather Underground website is: http://www.wunderground.com/
