SAW-WHET OWL BANDING
A special night in October for Conservancy upper-level members & donors
Guide: Shealyn Marino, researcher for Wilkes University
Northern saw-whet owl's migration from northern breeding grounds to southern hunting grounds happens in our area in October and November. Banding is done to collect data to help biologists learn about the timing, intensity and pace of migration. These little owls are somewhat mysterious to ornithologists who until the mid 80’s knew very little about them. They are nocturnal and seldom seen, despite being one of the most common owls in forests in northern North America. Learn more about them here:
