Project Owlnet

Project Owlnet is a banding project to determine the timing, intensity, and pace of migration of the Northern Saw-whet Owl. The migration of these owls was not well known before this project started in the mid-1990s. 

We’ve been hosting a site at SERC since 2017. Help us band and measure small Northern saw-whet owls to track their migrations!
