Northern Saw-whet owl banding at Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory has been extremely successful this fall, with more than 250 birds banded to date. On November 15, several owls were examined and documented.
Members of the family Paridae, chickadees and titmice are small perching birds with strong feet. They also have short thin bills used for gleaning insects and seeds. Both nest in cavities and will sometimes use bird boxes.
