Small enough to sit in your hand, Northern Saw-whet Owls migrate through New England by the thousands each fall, offering a unique opportunity for study. Join biologists Chris Volonte and Hillary Siener to learn what owl banding efforts are revealing about this diminutive bird of prey, and to see a demonstration of the banding process. If any owls are successfully caught, we’ll have the opportunity to observe as they’re carefully weighed, measured, tagged, and released back to the wild. Please note that these are wild animals, so we cannot guarantee that owls will show up on the night of this event.

7 to 8:30 p.m. in or near Hancock. Exact meeting location will be provided upon registration. Rain/wind date: October 29. Registration is now full for this program. To be added to the waitlist, please contact Miles Stahmann.
