Owl Banding at Lucky Peak

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.
