Highlights: Boreal Owl (banded)
Keith and Wendy banded the first Boreal Owl of the fall last night. Hopefully this is a sign that it will be a good fall for the northern owl species. Tim finally got a nice waterbird flight again, he also continues to have decent shorebird activity at the tip. Merlin and Peregrine Falcons continue to hunt the woods and the tip on a daily basis. The woods were fairly active again today. The warbler diversity was down, but we continue to see more of the mid-season migrants. Sightings today included; Ruffed Grouse, Brown Creeper, Winter Wren, Pileated Woodpecker, and Gray-cheeked Thrush.
