At the end of my time at Lucky Peak in Idaho (I am now back in Indiana . . . at least for a little while) I was lucky enough to cover a couple of owl shifts. On my first shift, from 2-7 am, I ended up with 3 Northern Saw-whet Owls. Unfortunately, two of the owls came on the last net run, when you are supposed to be closing nets. The next night I worked the early shift from 8pm-1am. I did a little better and ended up with 5 Saw-whets.
