The past week has had us almost stopped in our tracks with the Remnants of Hurricane Sandy making life miserable for alot of Creatures, including us Banders. I have not been out for Owls since the 27th and managed to Band 9 new Owls , one of which was the 200th newly Banded Owl for the season.

We also Retrapped a Eastern Screech Owl, that was originally banded on my Big Night last Season on Oct22 2011. Ironically It was on the 22 of Oct this year. That may be a little Karma !

We will endeavour to keep the Owl Nets ready until November 11th, as in past years and the Hawk Nets will kept ready until the end of the month.
