Owl-banding 2012, Take 2

I went owl-banding again last night. We caught a total of five owls yesterday despite a brief period of rain.  However, there were many people present - intern, volunteers, students, bander, etc, definitely a packed cabin.

Once again, I didn't take too many photos.  Here are pretty much the only ones I took.

Video of measuring its wing chord and tail length.

One of the released owls ended up perching on the tree just outside the cabin.  The only shot I could get with an LED light and the build-in flash.  Terrible photo, I know, but you get the gist.

Reading week here at Trent next week.  Hope to get some work done, as well as some relaxing activities, e.g. photography.
