Saw-whet Owl Banding Demonstration

Registration required | By donation (of any amount) at the door
NBNC is part of a national network of scientists working to better understand the migration of the Northern Saw-whet Owl, a common yet elusive member of our Vermont forests. Join NBNC biologists as they capture, tag, and release these pint-sized owls. NBNC naturalists and educators will also discuss the highlights of recent research here and across the country, then share what’s been discovered about this mysterious little predator. Open to all ages.
- The program will have a mixture of indoor and outdoor activity. Please bring a mask for indoor portions, and wear warm clothes for the outdoor portion.
- Each program is limited to 30 people.
- We will cancel the program in the event of forecasted rain or high winds, and notify you via the email provided at registration by mid-afternoon on the day of the program.
- We can’t guarantee that we’ll encounter these wild owls, but these programs have been scheduled at the peak of their fall migration season when they are most likely to visit our research station.
