Successful Owl-Banding Last Night

Let's see what I did so far this week. I went to a pumpkin carving party on Tuesday night. And then I went owl-banding last night. Originally there were several people coming, but in the end there was only the bander-in-charge and myself, which was nice because you really need two people for this task. We were afraid that it might rain but it was overcast but dry (and cool) the entire evening, and we had one of the most successful nights yet - 7 owls with 1 recapture (from the same night).

I left my 50 f2 lens at home and used the standard kit lens instead, the photos turned out well.

Inside the banding cabin - nice and homely.

Record of which net is most successful at catching owls.

Caught one!

Going to get you out as soon as I snap a photo.

You can go on your migration now, little fella!

One of the best nights so far. Apparently someone forgot there are 31 days in October.

Relaxing time is over, time to get some work done!
