Contact Audrey at (603) 525-3394 or by email to join the waitlist.

Small enough to sit in your hand, saw-whet owls migrate through New England by the thousands each fall, offering a unique opportunity for study. Join the Harris Center’s saw-whet banding team to learn about this tiny bird of prey, and to see a demonstration of the banding process. If any owls are successfully caught, we’ll have a chance 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.

7:30 to 9 p.m. in or near Hancock. Space is limited, and registration is full. Exact meeting location will be provided upon registration. For more information, including questions about accessibility, contact Susie Spikol.
