Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory - 2016 Saw-whet Owl Totals
Sightings

As they say in the cartoons - "That's all folks"  PEPtBO has now closed for the 2016 season

We banded 724 Saw-whets, 22 Barred and 5 Long-eared. Not too bad a season, we're now already looking forward to next year - just 334 days to go.

On our final few hours after we had taken the nets down there was a male Saw-whet calling to us from near the banding hut as if to say either "goodbye" or "Ha, Ha, you missed me".

As in the policy of most other organizations or groups, the Observatory does not reveal to visitors the locations of any owls seen during the day that are sitting in the trees or bushes.
