We finished our holidays by going to see Saw Whet Owl Banding. Luckily we saw 5 of the little owls. I was thrilled to be allowed to do a release.
Each saw whet is banded with a special number, then measured to see the length of the wings, weighed, and wings checked for their age. Finally they are then released. Jen is holding one of this years hatched Saw Whet.
