.Are back! In a big way.

Based on reports of an earlier than usual migration from my nearest banding
station in BC, which banded more owls in their opening week than they had
the entire season last year, I opened up my banding station this evening.
Owling results on Saturday morning indicated that the owls had not yet made
it to the Bainbridge Island. In the five hours I was open, I banded two
saw-whets and heard probably another half dozen. This is my earliest arrival
record of saw-whets in the 20+ years I have kept records.

This year's numbers may be unprecedented.
