Northern Saw-whet Owl Banding

Phil with a Northern Saw-Whet Owl

We had the good fortune this last week to take part as volunteers in Scott Rashid‘s Northern Saw-whet Owl (NSWO) banding project. There isn’t much known about these little owls, and Scott is the only bander here in Colorado. Exciting to be a part of that….and the owls are simply the most adorable creatures in the world.

Scott is looking for volunteers for the banding project – check out this article if you are interested!
