Owls and other kinds of Owls!
Another busy Owl night this evening!! Obviously looking at the photos . . . . I captured my first Barred Owl for the season!! Yes, I did get taloned on the finger by this bird but nothing too bad! 😦
This was an excellent migration night with North-West winds and colder temperatures pushing the birdies South. The brighter moon slowed things down quickly (as the moon got higher in the sky) but I was able to band 6 Northern Saw-whet Owls (before closing at midnight). Below you can see the video of the Barred Owl being released but I do have to apologize for the video being a little dark.
Ok, I am off to bed! Night and don’t let the bed bugs bite!
