Each fall Community Naturalist Zach Hutchinson and a team of volunteers bands Northern Saw-whet Owls for Project Owlnet! Owls are safely captured, measured, and banded in order to provide important data for conserving this beautiful species. It's also a fantastic opportunity to see these adorable and elusive birds!s
Unfortunately, the 2019 owl-banding season ended early due to heavy snows that made the banding station inaccessible. Stay tuned for next year! In the meantime, you can sign up for summer songbird banding below.
