10/30/10 Buzzards Roast

10/30/10 Buzzard's Roost, Chillicothe, Ohio, off of Red Bird Lane
We set up various mist nets in the area. The place was highly wooded with some bushes and shrubs. Plenty of fallen leaves as fall is in effect. Between 1530-1830 the mist netting set up and capture lasted. It was chilly as temperatures decreased during the activity. Birds captured in the mists nests were Tufted Titmouse (4), Northern Cardinals (2,male,female), Hermit Thrush, Sharp Shinned Hawk, and an American Goldfinch.

Later that night we attempted to capture Saw Whet Owls but they did not appear. It may have been too warm, too windy, not migrated to the area yet, or simply evaded capture. THough the early van reported seeing a Barred Owl, which may prey upon the Saw Whet Owl.
