An Evening for Night Owls

Every autumn a small north woods owl called the Saw-whet migrates south in a silent and secretive wave. The staff at Quarry Hill is among a small group of researchers trying to capture and band these birds in an effort to better understand their migration. During the evening you will learn more about the secretive saw-whet owl and Quarry Hill’s research. Then we’ll travel in the Quarry Hill Critter Coach a few minutes east of town to visit the owl banding site. There, after a 10 minute uphill hike to the study site, we will check the nets and band any captured owls.
