Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory - 2017 Saw-whet Owl Totals
Sightings

Effective immediately:-

Due to the expected inclement weather, the Saw-whet Owl banding is now finished for the 2017 season. 

We ended up with 589 saw-whets being banded.

 

As with the policy of most other organizations or groups, the Observatory, its staff and its volunteers do not reveal to visitors the locations of any owls that have been found sitting in the trees or bushes. 

This allows the owls to sleep peacefully during the day without being disturbed
