Sawhet Owl

A superb local bird-bander named Dave Lamble bands sawhet owls during their fall migration south. He sets up a mist net and uses an audio lure (a continuously looping tape of a saw-whet owl call) to capture the saw-whet owls at night during those cool October nights.  Naturally, we had to see what this is all about so we asked if we could help band owls one evening.  Dave said “Yes!”
