Sightings

Owl banding for 2018 is ongoing.

Visitors are welcome to view Saw-whet Owl banding on the following nights:
Thu, Fri, Sat October 4, 5, 6  (8:15 - 9:00 p.m.) SAT OCT 6 CANCELLED because of rain
Thu, Fri, Sat October 11, 12, 13 (8:15 - 9:00 p.m.)
Thu, Fri, Sat October 18, 19, 20 (8:15 - 9:00 p.m.)
 
Please note - banding does not take place if it is raining or too windy. 
Owls are also unpredictable - even if you show up to see them, we can't guarantee that they will show up to see you!

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. 

Thankyou for your cooperation.

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