Saw-Whet Owl Banding, Flag Ponds Nature Park

Unless noted below Saw-Whet Owl Banding is happening as planned

The 2018 Saw-whet banding season will begin on Wednesday, Oct 17 at Flag Ponds Nature Park.

 Please arrive at 5:30 p.m. for net opening and we will close nets at midnight. 

We ask that if you attend, that you commit to the entire evening as vehicular traffic can deter the owls coming to the nets.

Banding will occur each night until the end of November as weather permits.

Closures or time change announcements will be posted by 4:00 p.m. the day the banding date.

Contact Andy Brown at 410-535-5327 for more information.

Owl Banding will be closed Monday, 11/26 due to unfavorable weather conditions. 

Daylight savings time banding begins at 530 pm
