Our snow goose festival outing was a huge success with two Northern Saw-whet Owls captured in mist-nets. One bird had previously been banded by our team in October 2015 during fall migration, an indication that the bird was wintering on the Reserve property, and had so far survived the hardships of winter. All good news for this individual.
