Owl Banding: 10-5-18

Postby lani » Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:23 am

On a warm, clear evening of Friday, Oct 5, a group of 8 Kachemak Bay Birders and guests, including a 10 year old, observed the owl banding process at the home of Jason Sodergren. Between 8:30 and 10:30 pm, Jason captured in his net, banded, took measurements, weighed, and then freed 3 Northern Saw-whet Owls. These tiny owls were all hatch-year birds.
