Hello all:

Since our last post the weather has once again showed us who is boss, keeping us closed 5 out of the last 9 days.  Last night, October 21, was the first night we were able to run a full night of net checks since the end of September.  While it was a slower start to the night, we were rewarded by catching 7 Northern Saw-Whet Owls in total for the night.  This is our second highest night of the season and marks the third night in October we have caught birds.  It was really nice to see these little guys again.  The forecast for the rest of this week looks fairly decent so we are hoping to be able to stay open most nights for at least a few hours.  With the season winding down we are very interested to see what the next 9 days holds for us.  As always I’ll leave you with owl photos from last night:
