Even though my Web sites have been off-line and I've been without
e-mail for most of the last month, things have still been happening
at Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History.
Since Halloween night I have been playing audiolures and running mist
nets to follow up on my 1999 capture of seven Northern Saw-whet Owls
(NSWO). Prior to last year, only four NSWO had ever been banded in
South Carolina, the most recent in 1972 by Evelyn Dabbs near Sumter.
Last night (30 November)--one year and one day after the banding of
my first NSWO at Hilton Pond--I netted my first one for the autumn.
(Can saw-whets read calendars?)
Details and photos are at the Hilton Pond Center website (
http://www.hiltonpond.org ) under "This Week at Hilton Pond" for the
week of 29-30 November.
This nocturnal mistnetting is fun, but it sure does strange things to
my sleep cycle. ;-)
