Owl Netting with MSRW


Oct 20 2022

This is a special opportunity to see Northern Saw-whet owls up close with the Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch. The owl banding starts at dusk and goes on throughout the night. Although there are no guarantees, several owls are typically netted most nights. Measurements and details are documented for research, and then the owls are released. Weather permitting, we will have a campfire and snacks to pass the time between hourly net checks (owls are captured in mist nets that are checked on the hour). Suitable for bird enthusiasts of any age.

Location: Point La Barbe, St. Ignace. Directions will be sent prior to event.

Time: Begins at dusk
