Young Naturalist J glad to be banding again!!
We had more visitors at the Northern Saw-whet Owl banding station this evening than owls! I need to high-five Grace 🙂 for helping locate our 70th bird of the season (in the mist net) and then allowing me to barrow a book that I need to read. Mike and Terry decided to head home early after banding our first 2 fluff balls (thanks for visiting). Grace left only minutes before we captured our 3rd bird and then recaptured the 2nd bird again (The owl must be net happy).

We were able to get Young Naturalist J out to the banding station this weekend (finally) and of course he kept me awake much longer than I would have normally stay up banding! We finally closed the nets up at 2:30am due to the temperatures dropping and was only able to catch 3 different individuals. I anticipate tomorrow being a better night with northern winds pushing through the area (but then again I was wrong about yesterday!)!
Ok, off to bed everyone . . . . Good night and don’t let the bed bugs bite!
