The owls are curious and often look at you before take off.

2018 NSWO MONITORING OFF TO A GREAT START!
Ken and banders Wyatt and Dawn, plus a great group of veteran and seasoned volunteers will be running the NSWO station at the BCCER again, for the 16th season! We had a training for new assistants to show the banding process, the data we collect, and the value of long term monitoring. Ken and Wyatt conducted their first banding on October 8 and were surprised with an evening of 10 new owls! Eight of the owls were hatched in 2018 (HY) and 2 were second year, SY, hatched in 2017. It appears that it could be another great year for owl reproduction from this population of owls.
