Adopt an Owl Donation Program

Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory is one of the most active monitoring centres for Northern Saw-whet Owls during the fall migration from late September well into October. PEPtBO typically bands 600 to 1200 Saw-whets during migration.

Named for the resemblance of one of their calls to the sound of saw teeth being sharpened, Northern Saw-whet Owls are only 7 or 8 inches tall (18 - 20 cm), chestnut-brown with prominent white markings on the folded wings, and brown-and-white striped chests and bellies. They have yellow eyes, no ear tufts, and white eyebrows that connect in a 'Y' over their beaks.

Help support one of the busiest Northern Saw-whet Owl migration monitoring stations in North America as we continue to study where these owls winter, and how they get there.
