The Spring Migration Monitoring Program is less than 3 weeks away now and I suspect that I can speak for the entire TTPBRS crew in saying that the change from indoor to outdoor living will be appreciated!
One of our Northern Saw-whet Owls banded in late October, 2007 was recently found dead somewhere on the University of Toronto campus in February, 2008. This recovery is the first record of one of "our" owls overwintering in Toronto. It is also interesting that one of these owls would move to the interior of the city from the lake shore. A telemetry study of owl dispersal in Toronto would be a fascinating study.
