The only owl I caught last night was one we'd caught as the sun was setting and had been banded a while back. It's actually the owl from the picture yesterday. It has one silver band with a 9 digit number on its right leg and a blue band with "A63" on it's left leg, something we use to resight it in the field. It's always good to recapture birds to confirm that are still here or see how weight is fluctuating, but it's nice to catch unbanded ones too, which has not been happening much.

Here it is last night:
