Bird Banding: Saw-whet Owls - Friday, November 6 6pm Lowe-Volk Park, 2401 State Route 598 For the 5th year, the Crawford Park District welcomes Bander Bob Scott Placier who will bring his nets, knowledge, and research to gain some insight into Saw-whet Owls in Crawford County. Since 2003, Bob has been contributing his Saw-whet research to a continent-wide organization, Project Owlnet, which monitors the migratory ecology and population dynamics of the Northern Saw-whet Owl. The program will start inside with a brief PowerPoint, and then move outside where calling tapes will hopefully draw in Ohio’s smallest owl. Fun for the whole family. Plan to be outside.
